    Vila Franca do Campo

    The little islet of Vila Franca do Campo is one of the most iconic landscapes on the Azorean island of Sao Miguel. It is over 4000 years old, actually very young geological speaking and it isn’t active anymore. The islet has a volcanic origin and the volcanic activity occurred over time. From the outside you can see many layers and each layer represents an explosive eruption.

    The rock fortress of Sigiriya is one of the most valuable historical monuments of Sri Lanka. On its summit there are the ruins of an ancient civilization. Sigiriya refuses to reveal its secrets easily and you’ll have to climb a series of steep staircases attached to rocky walls to reach the top. The locals call it the Eighth Wonder of the World and they’re probably right.
