The imposing mountain range that rises up on the south coast of Madeira, creating the natural amphitheatre across which the municipality of Funchal is spread, is marked by its dense vegetation. The Babosas Viewpoint makes the most of its green surroundings, offering its visitors a unique panorama.
It is located at Largo das Babosas, which gives the observatory its name. This square is also known as 'Largo de Nossa Senhora da Conceição' because of the Nossa Senhora da Conceição Chapel, which was built here in 1906. However, on 20 February 2010, the fateful flood that affected the island, especially its the south coast, ended up destroying this historic building.
It is in this area that visitors can find the Babosas Viewpoint. In a privileged location, at an altitude of 563 metres, it allows seeing the João Gomes stream, which flows into Funchal, or Curral dos Romeiros, for example.
Located in the parish of Monte, the Babosas Viewpoint is near the cable car station that connects it to the city of Funchal. Make the most of this visit and contemplate the peace and harmony that characterise the island's Nature.
Located at an altitude of 563 metres, the Babosas Viewpoint offers a panorama painted in the colours of the dense vegetation that covers the imposing hills of Funchal.
