Geocache Description:


MIRADOURO VILA GUIDA



Inserido no jardim Vila Guida, o MIRADOURO VILA GUIDA foi construído em 1938 e localiza-se na Rua Conde Carvalhal.

Apresenta uma área de 2.000 m2 distribuída por dois patamares, funcionando o superior como miradouro sobre a baía do Funchal.

Embora se trate de uma área relativamente pequena, dispõe de um conjunto de árvores de grande porte e de elevado interesse paisagístico.

As obras executadas em 2007 visaram a renovação da imagem deste espaço emblemático da cidade, ao qual o passar dos anos tinha incutido algumas marcas de degradação, mantendo, no entanto, o respeito pelos materiais e linguagem arquitectónica original.

Recuperaram-se os muros, as pérgulas e os pavimentos. Introduziram-se alguns bancos para permitir a contemplação do jardim que se pretende com maior afluência do público, melhorou-se o sistema de iluminação e instalou-se rega automática.

Como grande mais valia, refira-se a criação de um painel de azulejos de Adriana Lajinha, com uma imagem antiga do Funchal. 



Inserted in the garden Vila Guida, the VILA GUIDA viewpoint was built in 1938 and is located on Rua Conde Carvalhal.

It presents an area of 2.000 m2, divided into two levels, the top is a lookout over the bay of Funchal. Although this is a relatively small area, it has a large number of big trees and high landscape value.

The works carried out in 2007 aimed at the renewal of the emblematic image of this area of the city, which over the years had suffered some degradation, maintaining, however, respect for original materials and architecture.

The walls, pergolas and decks were recovered. Some benches have been introduced to allow contemplation of the garden by a desired affluence of the public, the lighting system has been improved and automatic irrigation was installed.

The creation of a mosaic of Adriana Lajinha with an old picture of Funchal, has added more value to this garden.
