Photographer's Note

Portela, Porto da Cruz.

The belvedere from Portela, easily accessible from the road, offers a wide panorama to Porto da Cruz and Penha de Aguia (the rock of the Eagle, which is not seen in the photo). Many cultures terrace reflect the agricultural vocation of the village. Porto da Cruz owes its name to the driftwood cross erected at this place when exploring the north coast in 1419.
