Came here on the yellow hop on hop off bus but both operators stop here. We nearly did not get off as the viewpoint is not immediately obvious from the bus and it did not seem well advertised. We were the only ones who got...More
We’ve seen some amazing views this holiday but the view from this place beats them all. You can see far and wide. It is breathtaking. We got there on the Yellow Bus Tour bus which ran every 30 minutes. It is well worth the visit....More

At 350 mtrs above sea level the perfect spot for the best view on Funchal and the harbour.
Free entrance, build in 1950 and accessible for disabled. There is a small souvenirshop and a small roof terrace to have a drink or small bite.
One of the best places to have an almost 360º view of the Funchal hills and bay!
During the day, you can see almost all of Funchal at your feet and the beautiful blue ocean as far as your eyes can see.

Hi, you can use public transport and top up the 'Giro' bus card at various points along the Promenade area, this card can be used on all the Yellow Public Buses around Funchal. The alternative is to catch one of the Tourist Yellow or Red 'Hop on, Hop off Buses and do a scenic Tour of Funchal and the surrounding area, they cost about 12 euros p.p. and depending on which one you catch (Yellow v Red) can last for a couple of days. This is how we visited this scenic point, got off visited the area, waited for the next one, they are usually about every 30 mins or so, not that long to wait. Also gives you chance to see the surrounding area, we went to Camara de Lobo on our trip, but there are variations. Sounds expensive, but in reality you see a lot in a short time-span. If you stayed on the bus with out getting off, it takes about 90 mins. But with hop off, hop on, it's ideal. You can book them at various points along the Promenade area and at the Booking Offices near the Marina. You also get a commentary through cheap ear phones which are available in many languages.
Enjoy, sit back and let the bus take the strain.
