We saw this monastery by chance but stopped for a look. Overall, it is an interesting location tied into Maderia's history by relatives of Zarco. Although it is now a school for infants, there is plenty of the old monastery to see. What should have been a very good experience was spoiled by one of the worst guides we have... 更多
We Joined a guided tour on its loop round the convent and were still greeted by the guide. She was very informative and encouraged questions. Plenty of historic artefacts. Chapel impressive.
We were privileged to arrive here when a service was taking place. The locals are passionate about their religion and it was an absolute pleasure for us to be part of his. Stunning building.
A steep walk up the hill to the left of the little church brings you past a museum to the wooden gates with the bell pull to gain entry. A kindergarten operates on the site.

You have to ring the bell to gain entry to the Monastery and at €2 each a bargain. Nice guide takes you on the tour of the monastery giving detailed information and time to take photos. If you into this you will enjoy it and even if your no I guarantee you will find it intriguing.

Ring the bell and enter for an escorted visit around this little gem of a monastry. Many pieces of fine art can be seen in these buildings. Also you get a glimpse of how life in the monastry was a few hundred years ago.
Beautiful monastery with wonderful pieces of religious art. You can't walk around on your own, but there is always someone to guide you.
This was a lovely place to visit and spend an hour or so. It is hidden away on a hillside overlooking the west of the Funchal. When you first arrive you might think "is this right?" as you are greeted by a large brown door set into a wall. But you need to pull the brass handle (which is the... 更多
Don't be put off by the shut door - ring the bell and you are immediately let in and allocated to a guide. You may join a tour half way through but the guide does the whole thing so you always see everything. Interesting to see inside the convent and some of their treasures - the church is wonderful.
