We will tell you about a beautiful fortress in Funchal, about the Old Costums House, a square where a very famous and historical person lived and, of course, about our fantastic Old Town, a place that has seen great changes in the last decade.

  • São Lourenço Fortress;
  • Legislative Assembley;
  • Cathedral;
  • Colombo Square;
  • City's Gate;
  • Old Town.

For our tours, we advise you to wear confortable cloths, specially footwear, as Funchal's pavements might be slippery and tricky to walk on.

As most of the tour is outdoors, sunscreen is advised (even in winter).

You should also bring water.

During winter, it's always a good ideia to have a rain cover or umbrella.
