On a sightseeing trip and visited here. Lovely views. We were above the clouds and bright blue sky. Half expected to see a plane coming at us. Wear full shoes as walking along the mountain is a bit rocky. Definitely give this place a visit....More

Absolutely amazing views, and walking above the clouds. Accessible by bus tours. Enough paths to walk around and to enjoy such a beautiful landscape. The best place to visit in Madeira :)

If your fit and don't suffer from vertigo you MUST do the highest peaks walk with Lido tours, excellent guides in one of the best walks I've ever done.

We hired a car and drove up the windy steep roads to get here and parked in the road at the top. It was well worth it as the views are beautiful and stunning. It was of course very windy. There were groups of walkers...More
