Nature Reserve & Recreation Park of Cerrado dos Bezerros

400 meters, roughly, above sea level and approximately halfway between the villages of Vila Franca do Campo and Furnas, the Nature Reserve & Recreation Park of Cerrado dos Bezerros is cut from the neighbouring  Forest Nursery by the regional road.

The Reserve was created in the 1960s and displays a large variety of exotic trees — and a fine balance between hardwoods and conifers. Over the years, recreational equipment has been added to the Reserve, popular among visitors and inhabitants of the island, who enjoy the cool shade from its trees.
