On this shorter tour, we will show you some of the old Forts and tell you about the denfense of Funchal.

Another subject on this tour, besides the Forts and Walls , are the Floods. We will show you some areas that have been destroyed and recovered after some of the worst disasters in Madeira.

And, of course, the Old Town! The first Portuguese neighborhood overseas!

This is an area in Funchal that has changed very much over the centuries and even in the last decade!

It is place where we have (possibly) the best street art, some of the best bars and restaurants!
