Title: Vinhas da Criação Velha | Landscapes | Azores Top 10 Things To Do
Category: Pico Island
Description: Trilho das Vinhas The trail of “Vinhas da Criacao Velha” was honored by BootsnAll magazine in 2010 as one of the eight most unique trails in the world for the landscape and cultural diversity it provides. It is classified by UNESCO as World Heritage. The beautiful landscape contrasts the black stone walls with the lush green of the vines. This route is very rich in elements associated with the culture of wine making, such as roll-kites, backyards, shelters, wine cellars and tidal wells, and is located in Lajido da Creação Velha, considered the Heart of the Azorean Vineyard Culture. A little further on, there is a windmill (Moinho do Frade) from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view not only of the vine yards, but also the Pico Mountain in the north, and the island of Faial, to the west.
