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.
Escape the urban bustle at 25 Fontes Falls and Valley of the Nuns. Visit Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte and Igreja do Colegio Sao Joao Evangelista for their historical value. Explore Funchal's surroundings by going to Ponta do Pargo (Vereda da Faja Grande & Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse), Swim with Dolphins (in Calheta) and Quinta do Riacho (in Santo da Serra). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Colegio dos Jesuitas do Funchal, wander the streets of Zona Velha, get outside with Outdoor Activities, and pause for some serene contemplation at Santa Clara Convent.
