#1: Sunset view from the point

(visited by Pedro Pessoa, Francisco Rei and Luís Araújo)

10-Feb-2001 -- Well, the biggest trouble we had was to get an all zero reading from the GPS. The best we could get is in picture #3, the moment that we got a signal from 4 satellites. By the time we took this picture the sun had already set, and we could only take one more picture at the sunset (#1).

It's quite easy to get there. You drive 13 Km from Pampilhosa da Serra in direction of Amoreira and leave the main road on the Travessa sign. Then drive 1 Km in a dirt road down the mountain, go through Travessa, a little place with only a couple of houses and walk about 100 meters up the mountain to the confluence.
