As most viewpoints in Madeira, this is absolutely lovely, probably the best in town, and it is not higher than you get a good view even when the higher peaks are foggy.

We visited on a "Nun's Valley" half-day tour. Worth the stop and with a good adjacent snack-bar and shop if you missed lunch, as we did!

This was our first stop in the island, it’s only 7mins drive away from Funchal, the view only this high is already amazing specially with good weather. A must see when in Madeira!

This was the last stop on our way back from a trip to the Nun's valley. It was late in the afternoon and so was quiet and we were able to get unimpeded views.
