Ponta da Piedade
Thesite of Ponta da Piedade gives this point a special charm. The reddish rock of the cliffs, where sea grottoes nestle at the foot, contrasts spectacularly with the green colour of the clear water. You can visit the grottoes by boat. Behind the lighthouse, theview stretches from Cape St-Vincent to the west to Cape Carvoeiro in the east. Along a tiny road to the left of the lighthouse, there is a belvedere with a vertiginous view over the rocks.
