Cabeça do Velho


Located 4km northeast of the town centre, this diminutive, craggy hill rises precipitously out of the surrounding flatness looking not unlike the head of an old man lying prostrate amid the savannah – hence the name. It's a short but rocky climb to the highest point (his 'nose'), where the views are lovely at sunset.
