Funduras Footpath (PR5)

This trail begins at the Portela viewpoint, where you can admire the beauty of the parishes of Porto da Cruz and Faial, next to the imposing rock of Penha d’Águia. The walk continues along the forest road of the Serra das Funduras, then entering the footpath that goes into the magnificent Laurissilva forest. Along the way through this forest you can admire the extraordinary beauty of the endemic flora and fauna of Madeira Island. The green of the trees, the melodious singing of the birds and the whole atmosphere is almost magical and fantastic. Enjoy nature as you walk and take advantage of the places to have a snack and relax for a while. Further on you will find “Casa das Funduras”, a beautiful country house that supports the forestry activities in the area. Next to the house you will find the descent to Maroços, which will take the walker to the centre of the population of this area. Along this descent the walker passes the traditional poios, which make up this fantastic agricultural landscape, characteristic of this area.
