Free Flight

Chão das Mantas was named because of the frequency of raptor birds sightings in this area with an emphasis on the largest nesting raptor, the manta Buteo buteo harterti, which is usually seen perched or in flight.

The morphology of this site presents a small platform on the south-facing slope, with a landscape made up of the city of Funchal as a backdrop and the valley of the Ribeira de Santa Luzia providing a vertiginous view over a slope of about 700 metres down to the riverbed.

The surrounding landscape and natural environment provide unique conditions for an emblematic flight over the city of Funchal.
