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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Reserva Natural da Rocha do Navio (in Santana), North Mills Distillary (in Porto da Cruz) and Porto Moniz Natural Swimming Pools (in Porto Moniz). There's much more to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Pico do Arieiro, hunt for treasures at Mercado dos Lavradores, take in nature's colorful creations at Botanická zahrada Madeira, and explore the striking landscape at Cabo Girao.
