The capital of the island of Madeira for more than 500 years, Funchal represents a laid-back city made popular by its historical sites and climate. Named for its plethora of fennel, this city incorporates restaurants, museums, cathedrals, gardens, and a large market. Though it may be most well known as the birthplace of famed soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, this city's wealth came from Madeiran sugar. Tourists enjoy local crafts and wines, chatting with friendly islanders, and the ease with which they can navigate the city on foot or via taxi. Use our Portugal trip itinerary maker to arrange the details of your trip to Funchal and other destinations.
