Wednesday, 05 December 2018

“A new geodiversity course has recently been launched and the Mayor of Funchal, Paulo Cafôfo was a participant. The course covers a 5km coastal route from São Martinho to the Lido Complex under the guidance of geologist, João Baptista.

On arrival at the Lido Complex, the mayor said that it was essential to add diversity to the region's tourist activities and that this type of tourism allowed for a greater understanding of the islands historical and cultural makeup. In response, João Baptista agreed with the Mayor in respect of the island's history."

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.
