This is probably the best sunset view of the island. To get there, you have to go up a little ramp located at Vila dos Remedios, just a few meters from the Church. Recommend it!

Beautiful views in Noronha is kind of unecessary comment... The old place gives a stunning view from several beaches and amazing pictures in the old construction scenary and a peaceful sunset.
