Senhora do Monte
The small Montmartre of Madeira
Welcome to the small Montmartre of Madeira. Igreja Da Nossa Senhora do Monte is a very charming church, which overlooks the "carreiros" and offers stunning views of Madeira. If climbing its many steps, exhausts you, be aware that some people, with Christian fervor, climbed the steps of the church on their knees! We do not recommend you to do the same especially if you want to climb even higher to get to the roof of the church recently opened to visitors. At the back of the church, on your left, you will find a small access to the roof. For 2 euros enjoy the amazing views of Funchal.
If you like churches roofs, go to Funchal city center and to Igrejia do Colegio which has also recently opened its roof to visitors.
