One of the most famous places in Madeira is definitely the Monte. Here nature is all around you in ornate gardens and Nossa Senhora Church is also well worth a visit. Then take a ride back down by cable car or in a traditional wicker toboggan. At the bottom, visit São Lourenço Fort and feast your eyes on the exotic fruits in Lavradores Market.
And Funchal's flavours
You must absolutely drink ”poncha” and taste the famous sweets made from fennel (funcho), which gave its name to the city! You can enjoy folk dancing, special events and beaches. There are a number of bathing complexes from Formosa to Ponta Gorda. And of course on New Year's Eve the skies light up with the largest firework display in the world.
