Santo António Serra (Santa Cruz)

A parish on the mountain


Santo António da Serra is the only civil parish on Madeira island that is divided into two: one belonging to the Santa Cruz municipality and the other to Machico.


Truth be told, Santo António da Serra is a very pleasant place, with countless trees and beautiful villages and farms.


On the Santa Cruz side, you can find high quality gourmet restaurants, as well as traditional hotel units and rural tourism accommodation.


To add to these activities, the civil parish is characterised by agriculture, as well as livestock farms.

Santo António da Serra has about 1,000 inhabitants and a very picturesque area of 1,477 hectares (3,650 acres).


How to Get There

From Funchal, take the freeway in the direction of Aeroporto (Airport). Take the Santo da Serra turnoff. Then, go all the way up until you get to Santo da Serra, which although it has been geographically separated, it should be visited as a single unit.


You can also get there via Camacha, Portela or even by coming down from Poiso.
