I took a walk to the Cerro de Sao Miguel a couple of weeks ago. The path itself is easy to walk on and the way farily short (from the carpark next to the bike trail). The view from the hill is stunning and it...More

The road to the top is twisty but the view from the top makes it with the time it takes to get there. Look back over the autoroute to the distant coast and ria formosa. You need a good day with a clear sky.... mornings...More
