Close to Ribeira Grande town centre, this bridge forms a pleasing backdrop, and separates the seafront from the small river and town centre. Great views from here, in this charming little town

The bridge stretches on top of the city park which has couple of small waterfalls. The park under the bridge is well watched and has beautiful flowers. There are several cafes on the square in front.
