Recommendations and tips
With a population of around 112,000, the charming city of Funchal serves as the capital of Portugal’s autonomous region of Madeira. The city is located on the southern coast of the island and enjoys a mild climate and beautiful gardens. It was founded in 1424 by Portuguese explorers and served as an important port between Europe and the New World during the Age of Exploration. Visitors can explore numerous attractions in Funchal, such as the historic city center with its array of traditional architecture, Sé Cathedral, 17th-century Fort of São Tiago, a vibrant cultural scene featuring museums, art galleries, and music venues and scenic Monte village accessed by cable car. Every year, Funchal plays host to several exciting festivals and events – particularly the Carnival of Madeira celebrated in February.
When in Funchal, Old Town (Zona Velha) is the perfect place to begin exploring, with its narrow streets, historical buildings and traditional houses. The vibrant Mercado dos Lavradores is well worth a visit too and has a wonderful selection of local produce, from fruits to flowers and seafood. Monte Palace Tropical Garden gives you views that stretch across the whole city while its lakes and waterfalls create a very peaceful atmosphere. Sé Cathedral is also impressive in its Gothic architecture that dates back to the 15th century, housing religious art such as Flemish tapestries, paintings and sculptures.
If you’re looking for something different then perhaps the Madeira Botanical Gardens which showcases an extensive collection of tropical plants endemic to Madeira or take the cable car ride up Monte mountain for magnificent perspectives of Funchal. Museu de Arte Sacra offers a range of religious items like jewelry, sculptures and paintings while Quinta do Palheiro Ferreiro provides many luxuries such as golf courses, botanical gardens and tea houses. With so much to explore, there’s something for everyone in Funchal!
Traffic: Driving in Madeira is now much simpler, due to its dual carriage highways and tunnels through the larger mountains. You’ll need to keep in mind that driving is done on the right side of the road and all passengers must wear seat belts. The speed limit inside city limits is 25 mph (40km/h), while it’s 55 mph (90km/h) on highways. Recently, many roads were improved to provide safer routes, yet you may still come across a few inclined roads with sharp bends and gusty winds, so proceed with caution if you’re not familiar with the area. Also be aware that some streets are quite narrow, which can make them unsuitable for those with vertigo. Fortunately, Funchal doesn’t usually suffer traffic jams. However, there are more cars on the roads between 8:00 and 10:00 a.m., and after 5:00 p.m. So if you’re going to the airport during those times it’s best to leave earlier than usual to compensate for any delays that could occur.
Parking: When visiting Funchal, it is advised to plan ahead to manage congested roads and limited parking spots during peak tourist season. Portuguese law prohibits parking in areas marked with a white or blue sign with a red circle and diagonal cross, so it is important to pay attention to the signage and avoid risking a fine. That’s the Portuguese “no parking” sign. In the summertime, it may be tough to find parking in main urban centers, so the best course of action is to park on the outskirts and then walk into town, avoiding driving through the warren of narrow streets in the central districts.
