You have to walk up many stairs to get to the top but it's worth it. Com ehere in teh evening to watch the sunset as many people come here to start the exciting trip by the Tiroleza down to the beach.

Gives you a nice view. If you're brave enough, jump from the top. The trip on the "tirolesa" is short but the experience is for life.
