From this viewpoint, it is possible to observe the water channel that separates Corvo and Flores Islands and admire the silhouette of the “pink” island that rests on the Atlantic.

In this place, there are three windmills build in the 19th and 20th centuries for flour production. Although they are no longer functioning, it is possible to visit them. Corvo’s windmills differ from the ones of other Azorean islands and have various similarities with the ones left by Arabs in the Portuguese mainland. For the reason, the set of these three windmills is classified as Public Interest.
