Every year on 1 May, the city of Funchal pays tribute to its patron saint, Saint James the Less.

The old part of Funchal, particularly Santa Maria Street and Largo do Corpo Santo, become the scene of a special animation at this party featuring the surroundings of a typical Madeiran village, whose high point occurs with the procession in tribute to the patron Funchal.

Informações

banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
