Europe / Portugal / Funchal travel directory

Funchal, population 100,526, is the capital of the Madeira Islands of Portugal. Funchal is also the largest city on the islands and with its neighbouring boroughs reach over 150,000 inhabitants. 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.

Madeira's capital for more than five centuries, Funchal is said to have been named as such because of the abundance of fennel (funcho- in portuguese) that was growing there.

Part of Funchal Municipality is Ilhas Selvagens (Savage Islands ), one nature reserve 160 km (100 mi) South of Funchal.

Funchal is bypassed by a superhighway to the north east and southwest which accesses to Santa Cruz, the Madeira airport and Ribeira Brava.
