Responsable: Câmara Municipal de Vila de Rei

Description of view: The primary geodesic vertex known as Picoto da Melriça is located here. However, the central point used in Portuguese mapping is situated near this place, more precisely at about 200m west and 2900m south. The observation pillar is a 9m high masonry pyramid, which began to be built in 1802, situated at a 587m altitude. From the top of this observation pillar, you will enjoy a 360º view over the whole region. You can actually distinguish the places of the surrounding region. Geodesic Museum, opened in 2002, is also located here, presenting an exhibit room, a small auditorium and a souvenir shop.
