  • Beautiful crater full of crops, but best if you complete it by lowering or raising by the Paul de Figueral.

  • The descent of the crater at Pontinha da Alana is superb. Before arriving at the village, a corpulent Lady orange front unpleasantly asked us to have coffee at home. We refused, but several witnesses tell that after eating, she asked an excessive price. She also seeks in an intimidating manner, to sell very expensive coffee.
