Great views for picture taking. This is just a quick stop to take selfies and view the beach. Bring along your scarf.

This stop had beautiful views of Praia da Vitoria below. It was nice to look down on the town, and out on the ocean!

We traveled here with our private tour guide, Gui Bruges. We loved it here. Its such a wonderful blend of the ocean and the land. Simply spectacular. Gui really gave us a grand tour. It was fun and informative. We enjoyed one day with him...More

it was a bit chilly in December, breezy, but the view of Praia is unbeatable! you can see for miles, The Madonna sculpture is right behind you. I guess it was a George Bush gift for the Iraq war.

Decided to drive the car rather than take the stairs for a beautiful view of the beach, town of Praia and the marina.

Either walk the stairs or drive up to the point. What a view of the ocean, Praia da Vitoria, and the Island! Beautifully stunning! Too bad we can't build a house on this point.

We went through the stairs... several step to the top. If you want their is a road where you can go by car. Either way and when reaching the top you will have a great view to the Praia Grande and Praia Vitória.
