What to do in Madeira


What to visit in Madeira? First, Funchal, its capital, feet in the water and head in the mountains, with its bushy gardens and houses with red roofs, its narrow streets, paved squares, churches and palaces reminiscent of its colonial past , The Sao Lourenço fort on the seafront, the Santa Catarina park and its chapel, the exotic gardens of the Quinta da Vigia, the palaces, the Christopher Columbus Museum, and the Madeira Wine Company. Do not miss either the Se Cathedral, the Flower Market, the Museum of Sacred Art in the former Episcopal Palace, or the fishermen's district with its many fish restaurants.

On the south coast you can discover the fishing port of Camara de Lobos, then climb up to the rocky promontory of Cabo Girao where the view is dizzying, before heading southwest through bananas and villages, pines And eucalyptus, and reach the lighthouse located at the western tip of the island. On the north coast, you will discover natural pools and cliffs, then vineyards where we harvest Malvasia, a popular local specialty. Another seductive destination is the shallower, dryer island of Porto Santo, with its beach and small harbor with its white houses, and the remains of Christopher Columbus' house, now a museum.
