“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014 NEW

Nice viewpoints are always on the tourism list and this one is worth the five minutes off the motorway to go to. Its free. We all love a glass floor don't we?!

“Spectacular”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Since the "upgrade" the visit is even more of a must. The extended glass walkway and secure railings mean you can see even more.
There were lots of locals? gypsies? selling tourist tat, when the police paid a visit it was a real experience to see them pack up and disappear in minutes.

“Part of the west route for organized trips”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

This place is another must on the island of Madeira. Beware it is always crowded and you will mostly need 20-30 mins to make photos and enjoy the view1
