The steep drop to the sea seen through the glass floor is worth the trip, although the steep twisting roads up to the top of the cliff are a bit hairy Go on a sunny day.

Having been here before we were holidaying with friends so we brought them. It was a bit overcast when we set off and once on site the only view was down. So if you are going make sure it's clear for the best views.

This cape is close to Funchal, on the south coast, with an exceptional view. It is one of the places of Madeira to visit.

A must visit location which gives good views from either the platform prior to the glass walk way or the walk way itself, and I am pleased and surprised to say is still free!
