Madeira Funchal

Elegant colonial style architecture gives a graceful air to the busy narrow streets. The daily fruit and fish market is ablaze with local colour. Explore the old quarter with its cobbled streets, taste vintage Madeira wine in the many bodegas or be tempted by the hand embroidered linen and dazzling jewellery and leather stores. This bustling city by the sea is ever vibrant, contrasting totally with the tranquillity of the island interior.
