We loved Madeira in general but this is a little hidden spot that is a real find. Quite a spectacular monument. While there go to the Tourigalo restaurant in Garajau - absolutely amazing food, cheap as chips, great people and lovely service. The food is...More

You can find here a Cristo Rei statue and a viewpoint to the southern coast. Nothing special here except another amazing view of Madeira. From the parking you can find a cable railway to the Cristo Rei Beach beneath.

Its a Monument of Jesus and made out of massive Stone. Its is very high and you have a great view over Lisben! It protects the People of Lisben and its made with love and a lot of Handcraft.

Scale model of Rio's finest and Lisbon's copy. Great views out to sea and the chance to take a cable car to the beach. Brief visit before dropping off fellow day trippers back to Funchal hotels

Stunning view of the surroundings and a small beach nearby where a cable car takes you in 2 minutes. Small snack house on the beach.

This place has a beautiful view from there but don’t miss the cable car ride it’s look scary as it very steep but worth the ride all way down. Make sure you go with good weather otherwise you won’t enjoy much.

Came here on a very wet and windy day whilst touring East Madeira. The monument is quite impressive but the cafés etc were all closed and the immediate area looked rather run down although the houses on the hillside are quite interesting.
