Pico dos Barcelos is partly viewpoint, and the rest park.. Open daily from 8:00 to 20:00 pm, with free access, and offers a nice view of the Madeiran coast. If you go up, which is easily done by car, you can see from three different heights over 180 degrees of ocean and mountains. If you bring kids, there is a playground with swings to play while the adults enjoy the view. You can also have a coffee there, or take a souvenir. In the stalls, they will be happy to sell you a cheerful Cristiano Ronaldo shirt.
The Pico do Arieiro has been there for some time and is considered the second highest on the island of Madeira, after Pico Ruivo which is almost 2000 meters high (1860), it takes 30 minutes to get there by car. It appears almost as a lunar landscape with rugged mountains and hillsides covered with eucalyptus and laurel trees. When ascending, at about 900 meters, you can pass through clouds before reaching a sunny landscape of volcanic rocks. At the top you can see the valleys and mountain ranges with sharp peaks at that time I took few photographs, which invites me to come again and enjoy nature and the beautiful scenery which covers the island. It's worth seeing Dos Lavradores Market, in the center of Funchal, the Cathedral or Sé, the botanical garden and of course take a long walk through the port of Funchal. Oh I forgot to tell you, the island is very nice but beach lovers say there are no beaches, but it has some natural pools prepared seaside.
Although from there, you don't see the sun across the Atlantic, this high spot in Madeira is good place to end the day. Here, Lorenzo is softly hidden behind parts of Funchal. To the left, the ocean caresses the docking pier, where many cruise ships that arrive to the capital of the island are. To the right, the white houses that flood the slope gradually lose their intensity. It's a nice show. I really enjoyed it, even with the soundtrack of speeding cars. Recommended to go up by car or taxi (about 20 euros, maybe a little less). You can also go up by bus, as there is a stop right there.
