One of the fantastic places in Madeira. Excellent views. If you start from the lower entrance - don't forget to pick up the flash light - you will pass 700 meters tunnel. All remaining - better to see yourself.

Crowded and noisy end to a great walk was disappointing. Extensive shelter from the elements was very welcome when carrying my 15 month-old son in his shoulder pack.

The walk to both places is Very Nice. Some interesting views but mostly throughout the forest. A little bit crowdy sometimes and the way back Is steep.

Yes, driving along the ER110 you will see a parking area and a big sign with the hiking map. There'll probably be a lot of cars there. You really can't get lost - there is no need for a guide. We walked all three paths... More
