Pico Cão Grande means Big Dog peak is the planet vertical volcanic cone, a needle rises dramatically in the middle of the Obo National Park on the island of Sao Tome. Definitely one of the greatest tourist attractions of these African islands. The Pico Cão Grande has a height of over 300 meters above the surrounding terrain. The summit is located 663 meters above sea level and is often covered with clouds that give it an even more mysterious and shocking aspect. To accommodate such a resounding geologic shape as the eruption of the volcano whose crater is at the top of this peak had to be sudden, violent and very concentrated. Upon cooling, he left as a souvenir this column a kind of skyscrapers in the middle of the jungle.
