Amazing ride It deserves 2 passages ...
A newly rebuilt road (in 2007) with heaven made sticky tarmac, lots of visibility on mostly wide and long corners and almost no traffic. Its an invitation for speed and knee down action.
The only downside are the unprotected barrier poles, probably illegal, since its a new road.
If its a clear day, you can take the opportunity to go trough Monchique and ride all the way to the top at Foia, there you will have a clear view south on the Algarve coast and the sea.
