Then walk from Cova de Paul on Santo Antão, surrounded by cathedral-like cliff walls, down a cobbled path into the amazing green Paul Valley, with little villages scattered about.

Enjoy a relaxing day with delicious food at the remote Kasa d’igreja, before your head back to Sal for a three night stay at the elegant Morabeza.
