Machico

Trip Planner Europe  /  Portugal  /  Madeira Islands  /  Madeira  /  Machico
The island of Madeira's second city, Machico served as the first landing of Portuguese explorers in 1419. Despite this historical fact, many residents believe the town dates back to 1346, when two star-crossed English lovers settled and died here after escaping their disapproving families back home. A Manueline church located in the center of Machico allegedly sits directly above the ill-fated couple's tomb. Made for sightseeing on foot, the town is also the island's main transportation hub, its high-capacity freeways connecting the eastern coastline to the capital Funchal and beyond. Begin your tour at Machico's 18th-century fort, erected to defend the town from frequent pirate attacks and now housing a tourist office. To plan Portugal vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
