  • Very beautiful place. Recommend to first look at top with Valley Lookout, then go down to the city and to walk down the road carriageway. You pass a couple of waterfalls, walk to mountain river, see residential houses. Landscapes are wonderful! From the town of straying to Funchal and the rise of levada long 3 km. up to the lookout.

  • We were lucky that a rainbow stretched over the village. We did not visit the village itself, above is a vantage point with adequate parking. From here also the village trails. Tip: chestnut cakes or cookies try - a small café is integrated into the souvenir shop, it does not have a small balcony with two tables and thus private views of the village.

  • The third was once ... Only see Curral das Freiras too small, because via from up here at the lookout ... this time I decided to go down to Corral, worth, I got to know a little history, we had lunch there and photographed the various waterfalls that exist out there.

  • Lovely trek to the top viewing point. Took us 2 and a half hours one way. Highly recommend trekking boots as the path on return is steep and wet, this matters more on the downward than upward climb. Carry a good camera as the views are drop dead gorgeous.
  • The valley is well worth a visit. Lots of small shops and cafes together with traditional houses etc. Travel to the very end of the valley for some of the best views. Try to catch the Chestnut festival that takes place every year.
  • Beautiful area and suited for tourists. Several souvenir shops, snack bars and restaurants in a nice setting. We ate at the Vale Frieras restaurant, which was reasonably priced and nice quality. Great views in the area also.
  • Nice veiws and town bus is ok . Smells a bit like a moldy towel in a car full of fah ash.
  • good historic tale, dramatic views. not much to see in relation to the tale.
