The Queimada Viewpoint, Machico, is one of these sites, a great option for those who want to enjoy quiet moments of contemplation in this area.
This observatory can be found on Regional Highway 101, at Água de Pena. This parish, which belongs to the municipality of Machico, is about 20 kilometres from Funchal, lying along a slope that connects the mountains to the sea.
