This is a superb means of transport to Monte. As you board at the terminal in Funchal, ther is a good chance of a photographer popping up to take your picture which will be waiting for you at the top. As the car ascends there are spectacular views of Funchal. Travelling over private residences there is the occasional cock crowing and dogs barking. An opportunity to admire some very smart accomodation. On reaching the summit there is the not to be missed Monte Palace Garden entrance opposite the terminal. After spending the day in the garden there is the comfort of knowing that you will be transported back to Funchal in the cable car. The same spectacular views look different because the light has changed. Some choose to descend by sledge which is fun but is not as leisurely and does not provide the grand views of the city.
