Nuns & Valleys – Curral das Freiras Pico Areeiro
Known for being where the nuns from Santa Clara convent in Funchal found a place to hide from the French Corsairs’ attacks in XV/XVI centuries, Pico dos Barcelos is where this tour originates, a sightseeing point with a superb view from the capital’s bay. We carry on our journey leaving behind the urban centre and heading towards the mountains where we can find several points with astonishing views over the valleys where the village spreads far below.
Surrounded by mountains, with ocean’s blue supplanted by the celestial blue above and the picturesque massif background, here we can taste liquors, pastry and other products that can only be found in this region.
