This parish has about 1,145 inhabitants and its main economic activities are fishing, agriculture and livestock. Located in the extreme southwest of the island, the name is linked to the fact that when the explorers were unravelling the coast, on the boat Severus of Afonso, they fished in this area a fish of fabulous size similar to a ‘pargo’ (snapper). For this reason they called this tip Ponta do Pargo. The coastline of Ponta do Pargo was too dangerous for navigation, and for this reason a lighthouse was built on top of the rock (Ponta da Vigia), inaugurated on 5th June 1922. We can visit the land adjacent to the viewpoint and admire the magnificent view over the Atlantic Ocean. This region is distinguished from all others in Madeira, due to the size of its plain and slightly hilly terrain.
