Santa Iria is my favorite viewpoint on the northern part of Sao Miguel.
It´s located a little east of Ribeira Grande and shows you some of the nicest coastline on the northn shores of Sao Miguel.
There is quite a bit of parking space there and the place also have public toilets so the services there are pretty good.
It makes a really good stop if you are touring the northern part of Sao Miguel.
Santa Irira was also the site of a big naval battle in 1831 when Portugal had a civil war raging and there is a little memorial for that too at the viewpoint.
