At the next roundabout take the 2nd exit towards the ‘Castelo’ and after passing the cemetery on the right take the next road right (passes along side the cemetery) then the road bears around to the right and you now follow it for about 5km – cafe is on the left. PLEASE do not park directly in front of the cafe.
