  • Last year we were on the Foia been so we wanted this year's alternative Picota climb. The ride to the top is not comparable to the Foia; It seems but a wide failed bike path. And also the ' parking lot ' has space for a few cars. But the view is at least as beautiful as on the Foia. Unfortunately the observation tower not publicly accessible. Consider a reasonably tricky last climb a rock path (5 minutes) so you should be fine.

  • Another hard climb on 2 wheels , but it had to be done , great views & scenery all around , fantastic descent back down to Monchique  more »
  • Very nice view of the mountains and the beautiful stone fountain, just a pity that there is not a bar or bar for a drink.
