Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I may be unfair in my rating. It depends what you are wanting. The views over Funchal are excellent but can be seen from other places. It was the first viewpoint we went to on our week in Madeira so we were certainly impressed. The immediate area struck me as a little concrete. If you look over the city, try to ignore the ugly (I think so anyway!) cafe just below. We didn't go in so I cannot comment on what it offers. There is also some memorial there, which is no doubt relevant and important but not a major tourist attraction. Do go if you are passing - it generally features on Nun's Valley tours - or have the time but I wouldn't see it as a priority if time is short.

A great view over Funchal. Free parking and no admission fee are major plus points. Visited at around 17:00 on a Monday evening in late May 2023. It was very quiet with almost nobody around, but the facilities there (cafe, toilets, park etc) were all closed up.
I wouldn't say to go out of your way, but if in the area its worth a 10 minute stop.

There are many stunning Miradouros in Madeira. Pico dos Barcelos was our first one. We stopped here for a few minutes while doing the Nun's Valley tour with Tino our driver/guide (Madeira Happy Tours). Here you can start to appreciate the beauty of the island and the vast expansion of Funchal atop the nearby hills. Bring your cameras of coarse !!

We stopped at this scenic lookout as part of a cruise ship excursion around some of the sights of Madeira. Whilst not as spectacular as some of the mountain views in central Madeira, this one offers some excellent panoramic views across the Funchal valley and the surrounding area.

There are a few different vantage points and as we only had a short stop I headed to the large viewing area beside the cross and the interesting trees. Well worth a stop if visiting that part of the island.

just stunning views as you would expect and it was fairly quiet but no toilets open. Avoid the cafe there as they charge like a wounded bull

This is a great viewpoint. You can see in all directions. The island is beautiful and this gives you a good overview.

We visited here as part of MBTours half day excursion and you certainly get great 360degree views over Funchal, the port and hills inland. There’s also a bar/cafe just down from the viewing area (also with great views). Parking seemed sufficient but it probably gets busy with cruise passenger excursions when ships are in port, although there’s plenty of space at the viewing terraces. Our next stop was the Nun’s Valley viewpoint.

We stopped off here on the red bus tour. There are a few viewing points. There is a wonderful panoramic view from up the steps beside the cross. There is a cafe. Unfortunately the toilets were closed when we were there.
