From the cable car, hovering over the city, where buildings rise alongside gardens and kitchen-gardens, you can enjoy Funchal’s amphitheatre and bay in a scenario of blues, greens and oranges.
The city of Funchal is recognized as Garden City, result of the familiarity of the green spaces with the houses, with great floristic wealth, in a symbiosis between the countryside and the city. This landscaping and environmental harmony provides pleasantness to the experience of the cable car ride.
Watch the city depart, and climbing the slopes approach a steep nature fitted by the Atlantic blue. From the city to the top of Monte parish, see also the natural beauty of the Madeira, its orography and geology.
As you go up the environment will evolve and the urbane mesh will be substituted by verdant slopes, hills and valleys, in a journey with the city and the sea in background. The ride ends in Monte, town with a scenery and surrounding romantic, where it can be visited:
- Monte Palace Tropical Gardens
- Museum of Semi-Precious Stones
- Church of Our Lady of the Mount
- Fountain of the Virgin
- Monte Municipal Park
