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.
Get some cultural insight at Blandy's Wine Lodge and Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte. Visiting Ponta de Sao Lourenco and Pico do Arieiro will get you outdoors. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Monte Palace Tropical Garden, identify plant and animal life at VMT Madeira - Catamaran Trips, stroll through Cabo Girao, and get out on two wheels at Madeira Radical.

To see where to stay, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Funchal trip itinerary maker.

Traveling by car from Calheta to Funchal takes an hour. In February in Funchal, expect temperatures between 20°C during the day and 15°C at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
