Disappointing that no more publicity is given to this castle with such a stunning views. Sadly, it was closed when we passed but we could walk around

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.

Great walk with panoramic views not be missed. Reasonably easy walk although some steep climbs towards the end and the ascent to Pico Castelo. Well signposted and clear paths.

Worth a visit for views of island. Park car or taxi by the cannon (driver will wait for an extra few euros) and then take the small walking track to the very top of the hill for the best view.

From here you can see most of the island. It's a nice place to eat food, as there are seats and even a barbecue place. Recommend visiting
