One of the things that will strike you on arrival in Madeira Island is how hilly it is. The landscape is nothing short of spectacular with all the deep valleys, high mountains, steep sea cliffs and winding roads. So wherever you go on this jewel of an island, you will surely find amazing views at every bend. Some have been set up so you can stop and marvel in a leisurely way, with benches and tables and flowers all around. These are the iconic miradouros, or belvederes in English. Here is a list of two handfuls of the ones that you absolutely cannot miss, knowing you will pass dozens more on the way!
