Τhe Islet of Vila Franca do Campo formed by the crater of an underwater volcano

Vila Franca do Campo  is a town in the southern part of the island of São Miguel in the Portuguese Autonomous Region of the Azores. The islet came about following the collapse of a former volcano. After being used for many purposes  – from a military fort to a vineyard – the islet was classified as a nature reserve in 1983.
