Funchal Old Town Free Tour

We'll meet at the time indicated at Santa Catarina Park in Funchal, where we'll begin the free tour around the city's old town.

As we explore the charming historic centre, we'll come across the many quaint alleys and cobblestoned streets which characterise the city, perfect for peacefully exploring the area.

During the tour, we'll visit many standout old Forts while the guide explains the great importance of Funchal's defence. We'll see the city's first fort, built in the 16th century, the Sao Lourenco Fortress. It is regarded as the most important example of military architecture in Madeira. The guide will also show us the areas that were destroyed after the great floods and how they recovered. 

The tour will take us to other points of interest including the Legislative Assembly, the city's Gate, originally built in the 17th century and later reconstructed in 2004, and the Pillory Square.

You'll also enjoy the impressive street art by local and foreign artists, as well as the vibrant nightlife atmosphere that exudes from the bars and restaurants around the old town.
