Valley of the Nuns Reviews
die mich ein wenig an ein Alpental erinnern. Anfahrt ist ein wenig abenteuerlich, aber es lohnt sich in jedem Fall. Vor der Abfahrt ins Tal ist ein Zwischenstopp bei Eirro de Serrado more »That remind me a little of an alpine valley. Directions is a little adventurous, but it's worth it in any case. Before departure into the valley is a stopover at Eirro de Serrado
We took the city bus to this village and were a bit mortified how precipitous the road was at times. The views of the valley from the village are spectacular. There are a few cafes and souvenir shops.... more »
Very good experience. It is quite dramatic drive, it is sheer cliff on the other side. When you get to the view point after a short walk. It's amazing, & if the weather, like today is clear, you can take some great shot. Again I did this trip with Madeira sightseeing, I had the same driver, & he is very nice & gives you time to appriciate what you're seeing. Very enjoyable experience.
Absolutely amazing ! Those nuns found refuge here in the 16th Century from pirates on the coast and never saw the sea again. They were in a corral surrounded completely by mountains. Fruit trees were introduced to the region for the first time. Sweet Chestnut and Cherry in particular. There is a real cottage industry in the valley producing everything under the sun from their sweet chestnuts. The locals call it Chestnut Valley. The views are spectacular. Highly recommend a visit.
