“Great views of Funchal and Harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Sturdy old fort right on the seafront, painted a fetching yellow (beware, it rubs off on clothing and skin easily!). The building itself is quite interesting with plenty of views on each level as you go up. The contemporary art is rather underwhelming, but go for the building and the views. There is also a restaurant overlooking the battlements which has a good reputation and a great setting.

“Great Views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2012

It's a steep climb but the back streets are quaint and quiet. The views are terrific from the top of the fort. There's not much to see in the fort - although well kept and there were some photos inside. No charge. Would recommend just for the views and away from the crowds on the seafront.
