Follow a scenic road up along rocky cliffs that hover over the ocean for unforgettable views overlooking the sea. Then, head through a winding road sculpted on the top of a mountain and surrounded with deep valleys to the picturesque village of Fontainhas, 1 of the 10 villages with the best views in the world according to National Geographic.
