If you go to Madeira you have to visit Monte. The place is amazing and from the top of the church you can have a lovely view of Funchal and surroundings. From here you can take the Carros de Lobos (only if you like speed).

At the top of the cable car you'll find this nice church. It has a steep set of steps outside and when we were there you could go up to between the bell towers. It's worth a look, especially as it is free. There's not...More
