Nun's Valley, Madeira (Curral das Freiras)

This is a composite picture as the view was too large to fit onto one frame in the camera. This valley is reputed to have been a refuge for nuns fleeing a pirate invasion in 1566. It was hard to reach even in recent times, but now has an exciting road built through to it with the aid of tunnels.
