  • A nice view over Porto da Cruz and Penha D'Aguia. Very nice e place to taste our Tomato Soup with Egg
  • Great view towards Pena de aguila
  • Located east of Porto Santo at 670 meters altitude, you will find a magnificent scenery with hills and the valley stretching towards the ocean. Nice views over Porto da Cruz, Penha d'Águia and Cortado area in Santana. There's a nice chapel on the way to.
  • Came here while on tour with the bus. Interesting vantage point overlooking Porto da Cruz and the Eagle Rock. Before that, we had seen the Eagle Rock from the other side of a viewpoint which is unfortunately not official map listed in Google. There is also a coffee and souvenirs (logical). Recommended Outlook due to.
