Many tourists are being forced to go around the last roundabout to access Ponta de São Lourenço due to the filming of the Star Wars series. Some are disappointed that they are unable to visit Cais do Sardinha, while others are more optimistic, believing there will be another opportunity to visit.
We attempted to view the filming near the cemetery, but were prevented from doing so. In the area where barriers were set up, we saw little aside from makeup and support vans for the actors and crew.
Both at the roundabout accessing Ponta de São Lourenço and near the cemetery, PSP (Public Security Police) informed us that no one was permitted to pass until 8 pm, except for those involved with the production. Although there is significant rental car activity, PSP informed us that these vehicles must look for alternative stops, such as the viewpoint facing the North coast.
