Winston Churchill Viewpoint

The Winston Churchill viewpoint, located at the entrance of the city of Câmara de Lobos, allows you to enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the dry dock, the bay and the islet.
Built in 1963, it was known at the time as the Espírito Santo (Holy Spirit) viewpoint. Later the name was changed, as a way for the picturesque village of Câmara de Lobos to remember and pay tribute to the passing of Winston Churchill, since in this location the British prime minister painted a seascape depicting the bay.
The panel by the painter Henrique Afonso Costa, portraying Winston Churchill painting the seascape, was not dedicated until 1981.
