Steep climb from the town to get here. There is a garden containing oddments of carved stones from old houses and churches as well as tombstones and window frames. There is also a café in the garden. The chapel was closed when I visited. Most of the rooms in the house are the same containing English and Portuguese furniture, textiles, ceramics, chests from India and China. There were some interesting paintings of how Madeira used to look. Downstairs contained exhibitions of 18th century silver (look for the babies’ rattles) and French porcelain. You need to leave your bag in the free lockers provided.
