Caves and C. Volcanism


The caves provide a very well organized tour with a duration of about 30 minutes, duly led by specialized guides. The visit supplements the repetitive monotony of a little diversified visual offer, with the creation of a mysterious course, adequately illuminated, referencing it with well chosen music and a certain illumination with magical architectures and, mainly, with the earthly imaginary of the Center of the Earth ...

Center of Volcanism

The Volcanism Center is located next to the São Vicente Caves, on the cliff opposite the Ribeira de São Vicente in a charming village on the North Coast of Madeira, at the bottom of the valley, where the formation of the Island began. It combines culture and knowledge with leisure and animation, in a pavilion that allows the 90 visitors to attend, in a pedagogical and playful way, the audiovisual shows that recreate the geological evolution of the caves, the eruption of a volcano and to the simulation of the birth of the Madeira Archipelago.

Visiting Hours

The São Vicente Caves and Volcanism Center can be visited every day between 10: 00 and 18: 00, except on December 25 which is closed to the public.
