What to do in Funchal

Funchal is a fascinating city located in a picturesque island, so there are plenty of activities. Begin your trip at Mote Palace Madeira, where you can walk around the lush plantations that grow from acid rock. Then head to Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Monte, which is a cathedral in the city that's impressive both inside and outside. Next up, hop in your hire car and drive to Pico di Arieiro, which is a mountain summit that offers great views across the island. This takes about 40 minutes by car to reach.  

Winter 2021 in Funchal

Weather in Madeira in winter is normally pleasant, so it’s a good time to visit. Go to Funchal for New Year’s Eve, where they put on an impressive fireworks display in Funchal Bay. There also tends to be a great Christmas lights display in the city too. If the weather is good then a trip to Madeira Botanical Garden is a must, with a range of plants there to brighten up your day. If the weather is wet head over to the CR7 Museum, which provides an overview of Cristiano Ronaldo’s success.
