Forte do Ilhéu da Pontinha

Accordingly to the existent bibliography, facts indicate that this fort was the refuge of Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira, the finders of Madeira, before they reached the archipelago. In one of the extremities it is still possible to see the triangle where the sailors fastened their boats.
