Porto da Cruz

We were in Porto da Cruz a couple of times during our stay in Madeira. It has a beautiful route around a little hill which surrounds the sea, and also two natural beaches and a little sea water pool (not as big as Porto Moniz, but much more peaceful).

There weren’t many people and the sights

Ireland. Other points of interest

Just as we did with Dublin, in this post we’ll list some Irish points of interest that we couldn’t visit due to lack of time, like these ones: Skellig Michael Island, with a monastery in the cliff, Corlea Trackway from Iron Age or Hill of Tara, site of the kings of Ireland. We also couldn’t visit Croagh Patrick, the sacred mountain of Ireland.
