Found this during a walk, kept beautifully clean and has stunning views. No charge to visit. There's also toilet facilities close by and plenty of parking as you can drive to it

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.
