  • We'd hired a car so happy to drive out and look at the views - not much in village itself but we had a coffee and it was a really enjoyable trip - stunning views.

  • Beautiful place, feeling of a "lost" or "hidden" valley. It is popular with tourists as everything in Madeira, but much more quiet than other places. Reachable only by car. Surprisingly, not expensive. Beautiful, breathtaking vistas.
  • Authentic old Madeira roads on the way up and down. The views are spectacular. There are toilets at the top and they cost €0.50¢ to use. Souvenir shop, cafe shop all up here too. There is a disabled ramp but this will only take you so far as there is a step in the middle. There are other viewpoints though.
