The morphological, structural and volcanological aspects of Branco, an island of the Cape Verde Archipelago, are described and interpreted in this work. The isle consists of a 700 m thick pile of basalt lava flows and scarce pyroclastics crossed by several families of dikes. The structure of the island could correspond to the remaining fragment of a primitive large shield volcano. The main hypothetical emission centre could once be situated between the present islands of Santa Luzia and Branco.
