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.
Madeira Mandolin Orchestra has been added to your itinerary. Popular historic sites such as Blandy's Wine Lodge and Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse are in your itinerary. Get a sense of the local culture at Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte and Colegio dos Jesuitas do Funchal. Venture out of the city with trips to Ponta do Pargo (Church of Sao Pedro & Capela Nossa Senhora da Boa Morte - Capela do Cabo), Church of the Good Lord Jesus (in Ponta Delgada) and Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools (in Porto Moniz). There's lots more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico do Arieiro, take a peaceful walk through Laurissilva Forest, admire the natural beauty at Botanická zahrada Madeira, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption.
