  • The drive there from Funchal was spectacular, and the view of the top of the mountain incredible, we went down to the village and had lunch in one cafe, very good  more »
  • We made the hike down from a viewpoint at the top of the valley. Heavy hike, but very nice to do! Halfway through the walk there is a nice viewpoint. Walked down through the village and eaten a little. Well recommend to do in the area.

  • Beautiful nature! The views are to die for! The good thing is that you are still close to civilization, there are a couple of very basic but nice local bars there, too. There is a river at the bottom of the valley with a local beach - huge rocks where people sunbathe and even swim in the river pool. The recommended descending route (there are directing boards everywhere) takes a couple of hours. It's a nice walk, but please, no sandals! Good walking shoes are a must!
  • Beautiful here! I recommend getting a bus or taxi up to the top to the hotel and walking down to the village. Definitely try the roasted chestnuts as well.
