Photos - Fogo (Cabo Verde) 

Fogo (Portuguese for "fire") is a volcanic island in the Sotavento group of Cape Verde. Mount Fogo (Pico de Fogo) is the second largest peak in the Atlantic Ocean, rising to nearly 3,000 m above sea level. The volcano has been active in recent times, with its last eruption in 1995. The Pico is located in the eastern half of a 9 km wide caldera, whose walls rise up to 1000 m. The cone-shaped Pico forms the highest point of the island and its summit is about 100 m higher than the surrounding wall of the caldera.
