Now closed to the general public, the Municipality of Ribeira Brava has started work on the unstable eastern face of Calhau da Lapa.
Structural engineers have been monitoring the situation over the last couple of weeks, and today resolved one of the issues through a controlled landslide. A further analysis of the stability of the surrounding rock structure will continue for the next couple of days, and as such the area remains closed to the general public.
