Only 25 minutes' drive from the city of Funchal, you are welcomed by the breathtaking beauty of Eira Do Serrado, one of the most beautiful sights in Madeira. It overlooks the mountains and the Valley of the Nuns (Curral das Freiras). The valley earned this name because, during the 14th century attacks of pirates, the nuns used to hide here, away from all danger. This is how you will feel in Eira Do Serrado as well, sheltered from the agitation of the world outside, at the heart of the virgin nature.
Chestnuts and cherry trees abound in the area, so annually, on November 1st, The Chestnuts Feast is held. This celebration is just one of the reasons we invite you to enjoy a Half Day tour of Eira Do Serrado Monte. The tour offered by our reliable Madeira Transfers is a dream come true for those of you who wish to exercise wandering about the mountain and valley, breathe the most fresh air and feast their eyes with the most fairytale landscapes.
