Tour highlights

Funchal

Funchal is a city with more than 500 years of history. Be amazed by the picturesque setting of its old town, with narrow cobblestone streets, alleys, gardens, museums and experience the local gastronomy. Currently is a very cosmopolitan city full of life.

Paços do Concelho

The Funchal Town Hall is one of the most emblematic monument of the city. This building is a harmonious example of the architecture of the end of the 18th century. In this palace you can visit several rooms, an interior landscaped courtyard with a fountain decorated with a marble statue of “Leda and the Swan”, by Germano José Salles. One of the highlights of the visit is the tower, formerly used to detect possible threats to the city. Today it is used as a view point to enjoy a 360 degree view of the city.

Mercado dos Lavradores

Is the city market where everyone goes to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. Here you’ll find the most beautiful flowers, exotic fruits, vegetables and souvenirs, all beautifully displayed in an attractive space with an atmosphere full of life.

Quinta da Vigia

Quinta da Vigia is the current official residence of the President of the Government of Madeira. It was built between the 16th and 20th centuries and therefore has a baroque and neoclassical architecture with gardens that provide visitors with a beautiful view over the bay of Funchal and invite you to a pleasant walk.

Monte

Monte is a parish located east of Funchal and for many centuries, the summer refuge for many wealthy families.
Today, no visit to Madeira island is complete without a tradicional ride on a Sledge at Monte. This type of transportation started in 1850 and was created by the residents in order to arrive fast at Funchal. Each toboggan has two sledge drivers called “Carreiros”, dressed in white pants, typical straw hat and special rubber soled boots, so that they are able to stop the sledge when necessary by making use of their boots as brakes.
