Palacio de Verão do Governador

Historic Building in Chocas, Cabaceira Pequena & Cabaceira Grande

The erstwhile summer palace of the Portuguese governor sits in eerie silence yards from a deserted beach. Built in 1765, it's now a rapidly disintegrating ruin. At your own risk, you can walk around its once grand rooms and imagine past glories. There are superb views from the balconies.
