“THE lighthouse”
Review of Farol do Morro

Reviewed 17 May 2017

Even though we stayed at an inn only steps from the lighthouse, we were not allowed to visit it as it is closed off season. Nevertheless, we did admire it every evening as it illuminated the area and truly believe that, without its majestic presence crowning the hill, Morro de Sao Paulo would simply not be what it is.

You have to walk up many stairs to get to the top but it's worth it. Com ehere in teh evening to watch the sunset as many people come here to start the exciting trip by the Tiroleza down to the beach.

A recommended this place because you will see the local Fauna & Flora and you may reach the local TIROLESA ( the system of Hooks , Rope and pulleys with which you may reach the First Beach / Primeira Praia ) Our guide from CVC ( Maurício) was not very sure about the Farol ( lighthouse) history. The heat was unbearable by November and to have some vegetation and shadows was nice . Very close of the Farol ( Lighthouse) there is a little cemetery. I like these things and took a photo

The view from the top of the hill is absolutely awesome .. however the place needs more structure caring ... climb at your own risk and make sure you are balanced up there!
