I'm not sure what I was expecting but what I saw was definitely not what I had hoped for. There were two cruise ships in port and perhaps my negativity was because of all the tourists. More than that, I couldn't get a feel for the real character of the city. It is in a beautiful setting and some of the paintings on the doors of establishments were outstanding. But, my overall impression was that of a very ordinary place.

Praça do Povo - A large parte of Avenida do Mar, one of Funchal's main arteries, was destroyed by the floods of 2010. This large garden was built to remember those who perished in the catastrophe, hence the name Praça do Povo (the people's square).

Funchal es la capital del archipiélago portugués de Madeira. Está rodeada de colinas y es conocida por su puerto, sus jardines y sus bodegas de vino de Madeira. La catedral centenaria de Funchal, que mezcla los estilos gótico y románico, destaca por su techo de madera tallada. Frente al puerto se encuentra la fortaleza de São Tiago, construida en el siglo XVII. Actualmente alberga el Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, con una gran colección de obras portuguesas.
