Funchal's unrepeatable sceneries

From a cosmopolitan hustle and bustle to tropical Nature, without forgetting the crystal-clear Ocean, Funchal's viewpoints offer unique and memorable panoramic views. Let yourself be surprised by the landscapes of this garden city bathed by the sea.
Funchal's viewpoints are known for the elegance and diversity of their landscapes. Making the most of excellent locations, most of these places have panoramic views marked by the unavoidable presence of the sea and vegetation that paints virtually every nook with green tones.
Funchal's viewpoints can be found in historic fortresses, built to strengthen the city's defensive line and allow a tight surveillance, as well as in botanical gardens, surrounded by all kinds of tropical species, or even overlooking the Atlantic (sometimes with a cable car nearby, to comfortably reach the famous 'fajãs').
A visit to some of Funchal's viewpoints is, therefore, one of the most pleasant ways of keeping in your memory - and in your camera, of course - the majestic scenarios that have made this Atlantic capital famous all over the world. In recent years, Funchal's most iconic landscapes have even become viral on social media.
Whether the main feature is the city, the mountains or the sea, these observatories are open windows onto this Atlantic pearl with unforgettable outlines. When you visit Madeira, be sure to take some time to discover Funchal's viewpoints!
