Rising 529 meters above sea level, this viewpoint stands as the tallest peak in the Sintra Mountains. Situated in the heart of Pena Park, 4 km away from the historic centre, it offers a breathtaking view of the Sintra Mountains in all their glory.

With a panoramic landscape and the ocean on the horizon, visitors can take in the entirety of the Sintra municipality to the north and behold the vast expanse stretching to Lisbon and the River Tagus to the south.
