“Nossa Senhora do Monte”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Bugger of a climb for someone with a cane, but the views were great. Nice place to visit if you get up to Monte. Suggest rather than take the cable car back down try the #22 bus - if you've ever been on a roller coaster this trip is for you (if not this is an eye opener - but hang on tight).

“Serenity”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Having visited this imposing church on the mountain, I can appreciate why it is so important to the local population as a place of pilgramage. I thought that it had an ornate simplicity which must encourage confirmation of the faith which drives the pilgrim to it. Half an hour after leaving the church, I wished I had offered up a prayer as I hurtled down the mountain in the Wicker Toboggan!!!

“Beautifull church on the top of the car cable.”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Breathless view from this church from the top of the stairs.
Close to the car cable and to the "carros de cesto da Madeira" as well.

“Small and uninteresting church”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

The place has some amazing views from the outside and it is surrounded of nice places to see. The church however is small and dull... It's free, so why not?
