  • Old black stone hand made road until reach the top, when you have a beautiful place to have a picnic, and had a wonderful view above the magnificent island.  more »
  • Already approaching Porto Santo the most conspicuous characteristic of the silhouette of the Pico do Castelo. Volcano looks like syncing its dirty as he can look like. Almost like a film unnatural pattern. You just need to touch him, see that it is real and look down on the island. You will not regret.
