We decided to travel on the cable cars to see for ourselves the obvious views of Funchal. There was a queue of around 20 minutes to get to our car. The views are wonderful,both of Funchal and the landscape passing below us. To see the civil engineering work i.e, bridges and tunnels for the new motorway from above was a treat,highly recommended.

A must do. Great views as you travel up and down. Plenty to see when you get to the top. Lovely little cafe serving delicious fruit juices, coffee, cakes and even gluten free cake.

Probably stating the obvious, but this is not for you if you don't have a head for heights. It's a pretty long cable car ride up a steep mountainside. Great views along the way, and the equipment looks well-maintained.

This was an exciting trip up the mountain in a cable car with spectacular views of Funchal. When you get to the top, go and visit the botanical gardens and take a walk around the little windy streets all the way up to the church. It will be worth it for the breathtaking views and a little flavour of what it is like to be part of a tiny hilltop community

This is an absolute must whilst visiting Madeira. There were quite a lot of people queuing when we got there but we didn’t have to wait long. The trip itself is very smooth and there are spectacular views.
