Discover Fátima chapel, which is one of the greatest symbols of the local religion and one of the oldest in the village, which was recently rebuilt and with a new face. Meanwhile, you'll hear the stories behind the religious manifestations with the greatest force on the islands. Take a car and drive to a isolated beach where for more than 50 years, the shipwreck MS Cabo Santa Maria has been lying off. Today it is an important sight and a symbol for Boavista. The rusting cargo ship lies in front of the enchanting coast, right by the Praia de Atlanta beach. Over the years, the sea has gradually dismantled the ship. The current state of the shipwreck and the location has something mysterious. Very impressive! Visit the shiprecks museum in the city that keeps the remains of ships collected at sea and with memories about the discovery of the islands, trade between continents, salt trade and merchant fishing on the island. Get yourself lost into the wide Viana desert that is covered by sand that emigrated from Sahara and formed big sand dunes. Explore the fish and vegetable market, the best place to meet the locals. Visit the old pier of Sal Rei and the Shipwreck museum in the city center
