São Roque do Faial
São Roque do Faial The Essential

This is a charming village, perched on a ridge between two valleys. Around the town you will notice houses with tiled roofs over-run with vines, small terraced fields of market garden crops, willow plantations, orchards dotted with thatched-roofed dwellings... A belvedere on the way to Porto da Cruz offers attractive views of the island over Porto da Cruz, a small port nestled at the foot of a sheer cliff bordering a pebble beach.
