Pico Do Facho

machico

Machico bay was the first place where Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira landed. With its uncommonly shaped valley, it looks as if a balcony overlooks the sea and the mountains, in a municipality with great abundance of water. The sugar cane crops and its mill activities, made it become very important for Madeira’s economy until the 17th century. The eastern side of Machico bay is dominated by Pico do Facho, a 320 mts high peak named after the beacon (facho) that used to be lit here to warn residents of approaching pirates.
