It's a mountain, the highest point of the island, From there you can see both sides of the island. You have to do a long hiking trail to get there. One of the trails starts 5 min. away from my house.

I suggest Caminho do Pico Longo. It's a gravel road, surrounded by trees, cows and flowers (depending on the season). You can walk and enjoy the nature or use it to jog. I love it!
