Tips

  • Fischerhanne

    Spectacular viewpoint. To reach on foot in an hour ascent of Curral das Freiras (450 meters altitude, good to go). But also attracts car tourists.

    Nuns. It is said that some nuns used to hide there, as the valley is almost inaccessible. Then the whole valley belonged to the monastery and they let the farmers work for themselves

    Unique view from the platform. Come early before the crowds come.

    I hiked here from Funchal;
    were back and forth 36 km, but nice 36 km :-)
    It has a beautiful view of the Nonnental on the way there.
