Turnoff for the mirador is to the left immediately before the tunnel and be warned, the drive upwards is not for the faint hearted, especially if you encounter oncoming traffic. That having said, it’s definitely worth the effort to reach the end of the road...More

What an amazing viewpoint, it is simply a stunning place, and definitely a must do miradouro. There is a large terrace about 15 minutes from the parking area, and we recommend coming early as having the place to yourself is a wonderful thing. The place...More

Best to go early (this time of year, cloud builds up from midday onwards) this is free - around 100 easy steps to the top. Views are so high you could imagine you're flying above the valley below! Popped into the cafe for a coffee...More

Not quite good enough to warrant a long bus ride. Some history of the island but nothing special. A picturesque valley, village.

The road to the mirador is not wonderful, and in a bus would be scary, but I've driven to much worse places. It is however, really worth the effort to get there. The views of the Nuns Valley are amazing with stunning mountains all around...More

From Quinta Casa Branca it’s an uphill, 30 minute drive to Eira do Serrado viewpoint which overlooks the Cuiral das Freiras. It’s a popular destination, which periodically fills up with bus loads of tourists for both the viewing platform, the cafe and restaurant and the...More
