Photographer's Note

One of the most popular attractions on the island of Madeira is the famous Mount cars, these cars wicker and wood with two seats, are controlled by two "paths" dressed in the typical suit and white straw hat to wear their own boots as brakes , the journey to Funchal is done in about 10 minutes in a total distance of 2 km, reaching speeds of 48 km per hour.
The sledges dating from 1850 and those days were used as a rapid means of transportation between Monte and Funchal. Today they attract thousands of tourists each year who want to experience the thrilling ride through the streets narrow and winding down to Funchal.
The sledges are near the stairs leading to the church of Lady of Mount in Funchal.
