All about the Funchal City Tour.

Let us begin our tour by first visiting SANTA CATARINA’S PARK. Here, we can soak in the breathtaking view of the amphitheatre of Funchal. Afterwards, we will stroll to SÃO FRANCISCO’S GARDEN to explore the fascinating world of plants. Our next destination will be the grand CATHEDRAL, which was once home to the largest diocese in the world during the 15th century. Inside, we will be mesmerized by the remarkable altarpiece and the Moorish-style ceiling. We will then proceed to the JESUIT CHURCH, widely considered the most beautiful church on the island. It is renowned for showcasing the most original and splendid Portuguese artistic expressions, including gilded woodcarving and tiles. Our next stop will be the lively FARMERS’ MARKET, which offers a variety of produce that one may not have known existed. To cap off our tour, we will walk along the vibrant RUA DE SANTA MARIA, famous for its street artwork doors, until we reach the FORT OF SÃO TIAGO in the Old Town.

We highly recommend this tour on Fridays. This day offers the best opportunity to experience the lively Farmer’s Market overflowing with fresh produce from all corners of the island.
