The building that currently houses Funchal City Hall was erected in 1758 by the Conde de Carvalhal family and was their home until 1820. That year it was leased to an English wine exporter (Blackburns & Company).

In 1868, the building was leased to Funchal City Hall, which in 1883 took full possession of the building. In 1940 it underwent extensive remodelling under the orders of then mayor Fernão de Ornelas, who is largely responsible for the way it looks today. The salons are decorated in a baroque revival style popular in the 1940s. The Noble Hall is of particular interest as it is lined with portraits of the last kings of Portugal and the painting “Allegory of the 7 Professions”, a work by Madeiran artist Alfredo Miguéis, who also did the painting on the ceiling in 1940.

The guided tour to the building includes a visit to the 6th-floor tower, which offers a unique view of the entire city of Funchal.

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.
