Sunset near Madalena
Madalena is a municipality along the western coast of the island of Pico, in the Portuguese Azores. The municipality is fronted by the stratovolcano Pico in the eastern frontier, and the Faial Channel which divides Pico from the island of Faial seven kilometers away. It is encircled almost entirely by the Atlantic Ocean except in the east, where it is bordered by São João. Opposite of Pico is the island of Faial with the famous harbour of Horta.
