Frei Vicente de Santo António was born in 1590 in the castle of Albufeira, and died in 1623 in Nagasaki (Japan). He was a christian missionary that died as a martyr on the 3rd of September of 1623 burned for not denying his faith.

Very dramatic overlooking huge cliffs and the sea. Extremely hot so the opportunity for a cold drink and sit down very welcome.
