Funchal Holidays

A fascinating and unique town

Funchal, the capital city of Madeira, is a fascinating and unique town, and, situated along the south-east coast of the island, enjoys some of the best weather on the island. This historic town, dating back 500 years, is now a vibrant and bustling centre, and home to almost two-thirds of the islands’ population. Set in a deep natural harbour, and against the stunning backdrop of the magnificent mountains and green hills, Funchal has a gorgeous natural beauty, with exotic tropical plants and gardens spread throughout the town, adding to the charm of the steep 16th century cobbled streets, elegant squares and smart colonial buildings.
