The road up Monte Verde is cobbled and in most places allows cars to pass. Half way up, there is a good, panoramic view of Mindelo port but it can be VERY windy.

I travelled here with friends and you get a spectacular view of Sao Vicente and Santo Antao (on a clear day). It is nice and cool up there and it's a very nice hike to the top! If you like to get a little excersize, this is a great place for it!

It is a brilliant place to go but only at sunny weather, best time to try is around 2 pm. Do not be afraid of the dogs, they are friendly

The road from Mindelo to the summit of Monte Verde is cobbled and narrow, snaking its way up the mountainside. If you are afraid of heights the drop is a little intimidating especially when you see the next curve in the road ahead and the erosion that has taken place over time.
