Madeira Travel Guide


The village of Monte sits above Funchal at a height of 550 meters (1,804 feet). The cool mountain air and dramatic views made it a healthy retreat for the island’s wealthy in the mid-19th century, and today it still contains a number of upmarket quintas and luxuriant gardens.
