Photographer's Note

Funchal, Fortaleza do Pico.

After a steep climb through Calçada de Santa Clara, the Fortaleza do Pico sounds like a reward. Person on site and a beautiful view of the city were enough for our happiness.

The Fortaleza de São João Baptista do Pico, or more commonly Fortaleza do Pico was built in 1600 on the Pico dos Frias to protect the city from attacks by pirates.
