Sights and infrastructure
There are a school and several shops in Fonte Aleixo, but there is no accommodation for tourists. The village can be reached from São Filipe by "aluguer" buses several times a day, except Sundays and public holidays. The main attraction of the island of Fogo, the volcano Pico de Fogo close to the village Chã das Caldeiras is easily accessible on a good road via Salto and Monte Largo. The church of Fonte Aleixo is worth a visit as well. It is on a small hill in the western part of the village offering a beautiful view of the village and its surroundings.
