The Nossa Senhora do Monte Festival is the biggest arraial (street party) on Madeira Island and it attracts thousands of devotees. In this popular festival held in honour of the patron saint of Madeira, Monte Parish is decorated with traditional festoons of colourful flowers. Food and beverage stalls are set up in the streets where you can sample the island’s traditional boiled sweets, beef skewers, regional drinks and baked dough dolls.

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.
