Madeira - Funchal

Funchal, population approximately 140,000, is the capital of the Madeira Islands of Portugal. Funchal is also the largest city on the islands It was founded by João Gonçalves Zarco in 1421 and was elevated to city status by King Manuel I in 1508.
Today Funchal is a modern city, located in a unique area; the natural geological features form an "amphitheatre" surrounding the city, which begins at the harbour and rises almost 1200 metres
high on gentle slopes. This provides a natural shelter and was what attracted the first settlers.

Camâra de lobos is an important fishing village situated 9 Km west of Funchal. This village proved irresistible to Sir Winston Churchill in 1950 and was later made famous by his paintings of this little fishing harbour.
