The Nuns Valley Tour is the most popular half day tour we have on the island, offered a minibus tour.
This half day tour offers one, the views what is regarded as the crater of the extict volcano. This valley gets its name from the nuns that fled the pirates that where attacking Funchal in the 1500´s. Starting off from Funchal, we pass the church of São Martinho and stop at the viewpoint of Pico dos Barcelos, where you’ll enjoy the magnificent views over the western side of Funchal. We then continue our journey up between the mountains until we reach, Eira do Serrado, a viewpoint which overlooks the Nun’s Valley. This is the highlight of the tour and the views are beyond words. From there we continue our journey down to the valley itself. In the village of Curral das Freiras, we´ll enjoy typical madeira & sweet chestnut cake with coffee or tea. before making our way back to Funchal.
