Interesting viewpoint that gives a view over Funchal and the bay. The tour buses (we took the yellow bus) visit this but you dont get long to take pictures.

One of the best viewpoint ( miradouro) in the Madeira and is situated 355m above sea level. Simple place, but stunning panoramic view over Funchal bay and the city area. Opening hours: Summertime 8am- midnight Wintertime 8am- 10pm. Free Car Parking.

Worth getting off your tour bus for half an hour and looking down on places already visited. Slight drawback: the toilets were locked but perhaps the keys are kept by the snack bar.

If travelling in the areas, probably to the Valley of the Nuns this attraction is worth a stop. It affords good views over Funchal. Parking is free and there are toilets.

It overlooks a valley with a town at the end of it. I'm sure Funchal would be better for the fireworks but haven't seen them yet myself.
