Characetrization of Monte

Characetrization of Monte

Monte is a small village situated up in the hills overlooking Funchal. It is just 6 km away from the capital of Madeira Island, that is, Funchal.

There you can find Church of Monte. This church is the burial place of the Austro-Hungarian Emperor Karl I. Every year this is the chosen location for a big festivity.

This is one of the most visited civil parishes in Madeira Island. However, Monte also has another two points of interest, which are the famous and traditional wicker sledges (carros de cesto), and the cable car.

Besides, you can find beautiful gardens and well as the fantastic Quinta da Fundação Berardo, which well deserves an afternoon’s walk around what constitutes a live and historic museum.

In addition, another interesting place not to be missed by any visitor would be Quinta do Monte, which is open to the public. This is the place where the Emperor Karl lived.
