This is the view from the highest mountain of Sao Jorge called Pico da Esperan├ža ("Mountain of Hope", 1.053m), which is an amazing island of the Azorean Islands. This is also one of the best views towards Pico Island with the iconic mountain Ponta do Pico, because you might be above the clouds already at this viewpoint, giving you an unobstructed view towards Portugals highest mountain.

Travel Information

You can leave your car at the gravel road nearby and walk up the rest for just a few minutes. The best way to drive to this spot is by coming from the west by using the EN3 road to drive to the center of the island and then use the gravel road towards the top. Make sure to drive slowly, because the street is sometimes quite narrow and there is no guardrail to protect you.

Wow this is a really cool shot. It's amazing you were able to make it out to a spot so remote! I really like seeing photos like this from many Locationscout members. It's really cool to see areas which would are so difficult to reach. Keep up the great work.

Hey dear Eric, thank you very much for the feedback. I loved this spot as well because it was so peaceful and amazing to enjoy the sunset from this stunning view. I couldn't capture the height of this spot though, because in the first image you can't see that we were standing so high up there. Cheers, Manuel
