Situated at an elevation of 1095 meters, the Eira do Serrado viewpoint provides a clear panorama of Curral das Freiras, enveloped by the majestic emerald peaks that define Madeira’s landscape. Nestled in the mountainous expanse of the Câmara de Lobos municipality, this observation point is positioned at the core of the island. Accessible via a trail starting near Estalagem da Eira do Serrado, visitors are treated to an unparalleled vista following the ascent, dominated by the monumental central massif of Madeira.

The Eira do Serrado viewpoint stands as an ideal location to witness the transformative impact of natural elements that have moulded the island throughout the ages. Gazing upon this mountain massif provides a unique journey through the ancient history suspended in the Atlantic. In the expansive valley below, where the town of Curral das Freiras rests on a flat terrain of monumental proportions, the picturesque silhouette of the town adds a distinctive charm to the mountainous panorama. As expected, the Eira do Serrado viewpoint captivates tourists and photography enthusiasts alike, solidifying its status as one of the most iconic attractions on the island of Madeira.
