There is a cable car from the Botanic gardens to Monte, and from Monte back down to Funchal. It gives an excellent view of some of the extensive civil engineering projects that have taken place on Madeira. There are tunnels everywhere.
The trip over to Monte is quite long, and at one point the cable car juddered rather! I’ve also seen too many Bond films I think, as I kept looking out for Jaws to break in!
They’re not that big are they?
