    Wonderful path, which is usually also above the clouds. On a cloudy day in Funchal, up the mountain early before the clouds move up in the afternoon.

    Even if you can't see the sea due to fog and clouds, the climb is worth it. There is also a small refuge here.

    Check the webcams on Madeiranet.com beforehand. The tour will only be really nice when the cloud cover is below you.

    The refuge offers protection from rain and sun. I didn't need rain protection that day.

    Actually, you can look from most places on the way to Pico Ruivo in the round.

    There are always beautiful views on the way to the summit, provided the trade winds don't cover everything in fog. A few shelters along the way.
