Stroll around historic Funchal! A city that blends a rich historical heritage with a vibrant cultural scene, stunning landscapes, and a welcoming spirit. Discover its wonderful gems at your own pace! You´ll explore some renowned attractions but also lesser-known spots worth visiting. As a passionate traveller myself, I appreciate the value of exploring a city through the eyes of a local guide. But what I cherish even more is the joy of unveiling the fascinating history of this city! This tour begins at the iconic "Quinta Vigia", a landmark renowned for its history, beauty, and botanical diversity. On this journey, you will learn about Zarco, one of the "discoverers" of Madeira, the settlement, and other prominent figures. Walk on age-old cobblestone paths, listen to the stories they hold, and visit São Pedro´s historic centre and its artistic and architectural treasures. Wander along Cais do Funchal and understand the harbour´s role in the city´s development. Finish the tour at a Café, in the Farmer´s Market, one of the city´s landmarks; a worthwhile opportunity to eat like a local and taste Madeiran gastronomic delicacies, which date back to the time of the settlers. Explore Funchal and listen to its tales with this in-app audio tour!
