I've been to Madeira island a few years ago but I did not have the opportunity to go to Pico do Areeiro. It's one of the places I want to visit on my next visit to the island.
This postcard was sent around Christmas time by Joaninha.
Pico do Areeiro is the third highest peak on Madeira with an altitude of 1818 metres. The views all around are stunning with clouds floating over the beautiful mountainous rock formations. When the weather permits, the south coast, Curral das Freiras and even Porto Santo can be seen from here.
Pico do Areeiro is one of the most visited places on the island, due to its easy access, extraordinary views and well known nature paths to Pico das Torres and Pico Ruivo. - in: http://www.madeira-live.com/en/pico-arieiro.html
