Pico dos Barcelos Viewpoint Tours

The city of Funchal on the Island of Madeira rises gently from the coast back into the hills. As such, just a short way back from the shore there are fantastic views not only of Funchal, but the surrounding mountains and the sea. As any local can readily tell a visitor, the best point from which to survey this vast domain is the Miraduro Pico dos Barcelos.

Despite Madeira being a hiker's dream, the Pico dos Barcelos is accessible to all and not a “trek” in the traditional sense. From the car park to the observation point is about a 15-minute walk, and the promontory is well-paved and includes safety fences. Recently the city has also built a cafe, restrooms, and other facilities there for visitors, making it more than just a ride up the hill and back. It's a wonderful place to have a lunch with a view; shutterbugs will want to head there at sunrise or sunset for some calendar-worthy shots.

Practical Info

The Pico dos Barcelos is located on the Estrada Comandante Camacho de Freitas. It is open even in inclement weather, so check the forecast for the best views; however, it closes around 8pm every night. It is reachable by bus and taxi as well as private transport. Funchal hop-on hop-off sightseeing buses go up to Pico dos Barcelos as well.
