Madeira has plenty of amazing landscapes worthy of being photographed. The Contenda Viewpoint offers visitors one of these striking sceneries, marked by the imposing presence of the ocean and by the tropical exuberance of Nature, which we find all across the island.
This observatory is located in Contenda, in the parish of Gaula. This town, which is part of the municipality of Santa Cruz, benefits from a privileged location, halfway between the sea and the mountains. In terms of economic activity, it stands out for the manufacturing of the famous Madeira Embroidery.
