Francisco Alvares Nóbrega Viewpoint - The "Little Camões" Viewpoint

The Francisco Alvares Nóbrega Viewpoint, in Machico, owes its name to the "Little Camões". It was named in honour of the poet Francisco Álvares Nóbrega, known as “Little Camões”, who was born in Machico in 1773. This poet was prosecuted by the Inquisition and died in Lisbon shortly after being released from prison in 1806.
Here, an extraordinary view over the Machico valley and Ponta de São Lourenço may be found.
