MADEIRA – Eira do Serrado – Curral das Freiras

The Curral das Freiras is a stunning natural depression in the mountainous interior of Madeira that was the sanctuary and hiding place of a convent of nuns during a particularly unpleasant pirate raid. The main attraction of the Curral das Freiras are the spectacular views, the best of these is from the Eira do Serrado view point. This is also the location for the old foot and mule path down to the village, the path is a great hiking route with over 50 twists and turns as it snakes down to the pretty village. Once in the village don’t forget to try once of the delicious chestnut cakes that are produced locally from the chestnut trees that are cultivated in the valley.
