Like the previous reviewer never took much notice for ages, but while taking a second look and finding out the history and how impressing the quality of the workmanship is, I would like to endorse his comments, there are so many gems in our foreign travels we simply don't notice!

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.

Why the is this comment about impactus bar here? impactus bar its not near San Vicente statue and impactus bar sucks. there´s nothing going on there. just a ridiculous bar where friends of the owner make some noise.
