Funchal

The capital of the island of Madeira for more than 500 years, Funchal represents a laid-back city made popular by its historical sites and climate.
Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse and Santa Clara Monastery are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get outdoors at Praia de Garajau and Cabo Girao. Venture out of the city with trips to Spas & Wellness (in Calheta), Levada Caldeirao Verde (in Santana), Galeria dos Prazeres (in Prazeres), Ponta de Sao Lourenco (in Machico), Kayaking & Canoeing (in Canical), Ribeira Brava (Igreja de Sao Bento & Ethnographic Museum) and Ponta Delgada (Museu Carlos Machado & Church of the Good Lord Jesus). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of Madeira Story Centre, play a few rounds at Palheiro Golf, examine the collection at Madeira Whale Museum, and explore the striking landscape at Valley of the Nuns.
