Ribeira Grande por Darwin

"In the course of an hour we arrived at Ribeira Grande, and were surprised at the sight of a large ruined fort and cathedral. This little town, before its harbour was filled up, was the principal place in the island: it now presents a melancholy, but very picturesque appearance".
Charles Darwin (The Voyage of the Beagle, 1839)
