Vale do Bispo: Torre de Aspa
This was the only hint we could find for Torre de Aspa, on our way from Vila do Bispo to the coast. Leaving the tarmac road, we follow a road which is inevitably full of holes. As we do not have an off-roader, we decide to walk the last mile.

The tower itself, marking the highest point of the Costa Vicentina, is not very impressive, but the fantastic views are breathtaking!
Costa Vicentina: Torre de Aspa
View from the Torre de Aspa to northern direction towards the Costa Vicentina with the beaches Praia da Cordoama and Praia do Castelejo. The Torre de Aspa (156 m) west of Vila do Bispo is the highest elevation of the Costa Vicentina, the almost untouched western coast of the Algarve.
