Funchal has plenty of striking landscapes, almost always marked by the picturesque contrast between imposing mountains, which serve as a natural amphitheatre for this city, and the Atlantic, which serenely bathes the south coast of the island of Madeira. This is precisely the scenario you will find at the Nazaré Viewpoint.
The main access to this observatory is via Rua Estados Unidos da América. The Nazaré Viewpoint is located in the parish of São Martinho, whose territory was, until the late 16th century, part of the parish of São Pedro.
Located at an altitude of 164 metres, to the west of Funchal, this viewpoint gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy a panoramic view over almost the entire length of the capital of Madeira. From the coastline, mostly marked by the iconic Funchal bay, to the mountain peaks, this is a particularly photogenic scenario (it's quite likely that you won't want to miss the chance to take a photograph of this spot with you).
You can take the opportunity of your visit to the Nazaré Viewpoint to discover the São Martinho Church. Inaugurated in 1918, its main attraction is a triptych with images of the Annunciation, the Nativity, and Saint Anne and Saint Joachim.
The Nazaré Viewpoint, located in the parish of São Pedro, is at an altitude of 164 metres and offers a wide perspective over the city of Funchal, from the coast to the mountains.
