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".
Tourists are attracted to Funchal for numerous activities such as diving in the crystal-clear waters, surfing the waves, boat trips, swimming with dolphins, taking day long excursions along the coast and through the eucalyptus smelling mountain woods, paragliding on the coast, enjoying spectacular rounds of golf on the famous courses or simply to just enjoy a snack at the numerous cafes and outside garden venues.
