Funchal Guide

Funchal is the largest city and the capital of Portugal's Autonomous Region of Madeira.
The name Funchal, was applied by the first settlers that landed on its shores due to the abundance of wild fennel where, as tradition goes, the primitive burg was built. From the Portuguese word "funcho" (fennel) and the suffix "-al", to denote "a plantation of fennel".
