We found this place by accident while travelling back from Valley of the Nuns. You could easily spend an hour or more here because aside from a fantastic view, there's places to eat, buy souvenirs and walk about the landscaped gardens. We were surprised how few people were here and it felt more like a park than a lookout.

Visited this viewpoint on the Yellow Bus and also when we had a private car excursion. Did not get off bus so saw only half of view. Then visited with car and saw the opposite side and also were able to use the free toilets.

If you like walking you should walk up to the viewpoint it is a great walk it takes one and a half hour from the city center but it is worth it since you have great view over the city almost the whole time and when you are to the top the view is even better

Good restaurant here. Look over to the two spire church and behind there's a blue house - that's where Christiano was born just next to that.

we visited this Miradouro on our tour to the nun's valley. Quite nice but just one of many nice views you can have when leaving Funchal to the mountains. Not a must see.

We walked here from the Lido / Monumental area - its around 45/50 minutes of walking however the key point is that a large portion is uphill with some very impressive inclines. The point itself is over 1000ft above sea level so you get an idea of how high you have to get.

If you're fit and used to hill walking then don't use the bus or car and walk up - its a great trek. Otherwise, you'll need an ambulance at the midway point.

The view is spectacular across the island but obviously plan your trip with the weather in mind.

Lovely little cafe on top to get a coffee and bite to eat.

A must visit.

We bought tickets on the Yellow hop-on-hop-off bus and this is one of the stops along the route.
The bus stops for a few minutes for you to take photos, but if you don't get off the bus and have a walk around, you are missing the best of the views.
Simply walk up the hill, through the car park and gardens and you come across a viewpoint across the whole of Funchal. It's superb and not to be missed!
There is a cafe at the top - you can sit back and take in these views. Highly recommended!

A lovely viewpoint overlooking the city. Obviously valued by locals too. Then to seal our enjoyment the cafe served delicious coffee and warmed custard tarts.

Fantastic views of Madeira. The mountains look quite formidable. A busy little area for sightseeing, though most only walk to the view and straight back to their bus!
