Quinta Grande Quinta Grande, is one of the five constituent districts of the county Câmara de Lobos. It was created on July 24, 1848, from the breakdown of some sites in the parish of Câmara de Lobos and the Bell Tower, the latter at the time still owned by Câmara de Lobos, centered in the Chapel of Our Lady of Remedies.
Jardim da Serra The village of Jardimda Serra is situated on the top of the mountains above Câmara de Lobos. It’s worth visiting Boca dos namorados and the cherries that grow on trees. According to some authors the name Jardimda Serra, is derived from Quinta do Jardimda Serra, built on the site in the Nineteenth Century, by Henry Weiteh in first place in the Sierra, then in the parish of Câmara de Lobos, which would separate in 1996.
Curral das Freiras Curral das Freiras ('Nuns Valley') is a small village nestling between almost perpendicular mountains in the heart of the island. The huge cauldron in which Curral das Freiras is set was either formed by erosion, which is the more recent theory, or as many still believe, by volcanic activity.
Weather Câmara de Lobos enjoys an extremely pleasant climate. It has one of the best microclimates of the island, with no major fluctuations in temperatures throughout the year.
Symbol In 1420, Zarco witnessed something that would quickly become just a distant memory in the natural history of the island of Madeira: a large bay covered with vegetation and inhabited by a colony of sea wolves.
