A lovely, short walk that is almost entirely downhill from the village of Prazeres to the sea shore at Paúl do Mar. The descent is made along the cliff face, winding between terraced farm plots held in place by stone walls.
This walk is located in the western area of Madeira Island, linking the parish of Prazeres with Paúl do Mar, dropping from an elevation of 550 metres to the sea shore.
The descent is made along the face of the cliff between Assomadouro at Prazeres and the dock at Paúl,winding between terraced farm plots, held in place by stone walls, formerly used for growing grain crops, but with decline of agriculture today, they are largely abandoned.
Assomadouro is the name given to the place from which something interesting can be seen, being a synonym for miradouro (belvedere). In fact, the view from here is superb, with beautiful panoramic views to the left (the tiny parish of Jardim do Mar) and to the right (Paúl do Mar) that are truly dazzling.
