Steep climb to the hill overlooking Espargos. Good place to get a view of Sal generally , the city and the shanty towns

This is the highest point in Espargos (the main city of Sal), you will find a nice view of all the island the city. The road is a little narrow, so you should make sure that there isn't anyone coming on the opposite direction.

Monte Curral is a large hill in the middle of the town of Espargos, Island of Sal, Cape Verde. From the top of the hill you can see quite a distance in all directions. If you take an island day tour, you'll likely stop here....More
