Beautiful City Center of Ribeira Grande
Sao Miguel is filled with a lot of “Ribeira”s. Technically. the word means a river but these are more like rivulets. Basically, the rains just hurry down the sides of the volcanoes and head towards the ocean.
Ribeira Grande is the original town in Sao Miguel. (Now the bigger town of Ponta Delgada is the more important town).
I love how they have dug into the side of the slope and built the sitting benches..
