Overview

The Valley of the Nuns (Curral da Freiras) might be one of the coolest places you can visit in all of Portugal—and this tour makes it easy to explore the area. Not only is it a village built on the crater of an extinct volcano, but it was once a place where nuns would hide when pirates attacked the city of Funchal. Plus, during this tour, you’ll stop by the fishing village, Câmara de Lobos, and try a traditional Madeira drink.

Excellent Valley of the Nuns Tour

What can we say about this tour, our guide Nuno was brilliant! Friendly, very knowledgeable and a lovely sense of humour. As there were only three of us, he added extra places for us to see, as we were all in agreement that in some stops we didn’t need to stay so long. Every stop he explained the history and the thinking of what we were seeing. At the hotel we were staying at (4 star) the food at times was awful, like the morning breakfasts. Nuno heard this and asked if we were hungry, we replied yes he said we have the time and took us to a small local place that did a local type barbecue with the trimmings....it was EXCELLENT. The tour itself overall you could not fault it was excellent! Highly recommend ask for Nuno.
