The two archipelagoes of three islands each one, Deserted and Selvagens, are served by no boat: only the fishermen and the yachtmen can attend them. They are, as their names indicate it respectively, completely deserted and wild.
The island of Deserted Large, long 15 km and broad of 2, primarily mountainous, culminates to 488 Mr. One finds there a plant extremely rare, Chrysantheum heamatomma. At the 19th century, the orchil (variety of lichen from which one draws a red dye) was exploited on the island, as the vestiges to houses and the ruins of a vault testify some whose foundation goes back to 1430. Hunters episodically attend these populated trimmings of some wild goat’s milk cheeses, rabbits and several varieties of birds.
The two other islands of the archipelago are rocks: Bugio culminates to 410 m and Chão is characterized by Furilhão, an original point which is drawn up at its north-eastern end.
Selvagens (Wild Islands) pass to conceal the treasure of the captain pirates Kidd, hidden here in the years 1690, and which still remains to be discovered. Hunters of birds and gatherers of lichens (from where the orchil is still extracted) only visit these small islands lost in the full Atlantic.
