Explore the stunning landscapes of the Curral da Freiras (Nuns Valley) on a scenic half-day tour from Funchal. Journey to the center of Madeira to find dramatic, cloud-topped mountains and verdant valleys. Board the minibus in the center of Funchal, and make your way to Eira do Serrado for one of the most beautiful views in Madeira. Continue down to Curral da Freiras, traveling past forest bushes and the quaint houses typical of the Madeiran countryside.  Arrive in Nuns Valley, and see a small village nestling between almost perpendicular mountains that is isolated by the region's stunning geography.

What people are saying about Valley of the Nuns

Our guide David picked us up on time, right at the hotel. He drove us to the most beautiful places, on- and off-road. He told us a lot about Madeira and the flora. You would never be able to find or drive such routes alone. We did this tour as a group of three and can fully recommend it!!

Very entertaining tour with a very good tour guide. We had enough time at all points where we stopped to look at everything. Our driver Marco also answered many questions in between. Predicate highly recommended.

Jose our guide was brilliant, the scenery was spectacular and must not be missed when in Madeira.
