Discover the island’s charming capital on a guided walking tour. You commence at the market, where an infinite variety of tropical fruits, vegetables, flowers, as well as regional articles can be seen. A visit to the market is always interesting and varied, and you will catch a glimpse of the day to day life of the Madeiran people. Continue on foot through the old part of town to Fort São Tiago. Built in 1614 and named after St. James the Less, the patron saint of Funchal, it is considered one of the top art museums in Portugal. Enjoy a visit to the village of Camara de Lobos (The Sea Wolves' Lair) the picturesque fishing village once painted by Sir Winston Churchill, before arriving at the private property Quinta de São João; a seventeenth century manor where you will be taken on a guided tour.
