To see Visiting São Vicente

When crossing from the south to the northern coast, in the middle of the area, we arrive to S. Vicente.

It´s a nice small town, with a wide but rough pebble beach, with a restaurant in the centre of it.

The church

São Vicente

The church of São Vicente, obviously dedicated to the same saint, was built in the 17th century, and has a painted ceiling with the saint blessing the city.

Visiting S. Vicente – Beach

Though the weather was excellent, the beach was not exactly an invitation – a rocky beach with a rough sea is not the best combination.

​Nice to see, but from distance…

The chapel


In the middle of the river, in the beach, there’s a small chapel built in 1694 upon an odd rock formation, in a place where tradition says that the saint has appeared.

​I was afraid that recent flooding could have damaged it, but, no, it is perfect.

​North road

Visiting São Vicente

The northern side of the island is wild, with steep mountains providing strong background to the scenery road.

S. Vicente is the easiest access either eastbound or westbound, usually functioning as the starting point to two alternative circuits.

​I did it westbound… twice, which means that I will probably return to S. Vicente to complete the program.

Visiting São Vicente

In my first visit to S. Vicente I had a good fish meal in a restaurant very well located – right on the beach – whose name I couldn’t retain.

In my second visit I didn’t eat there, but tried to identify it, and the only thing that I found was a reference to the hotel 200 meters distant. Will it be part of the complex?
