    Avenida Arriaga

    Construction work in Avenida Arriaga began in 1914 and the avenue has become a historical and cultural landmark in the lives of its residents. It begins at Largo Dom Manuel and extends until the Rotunda do Infante. Walking through the avenue, with its typical Portuguese cobblestone sidewalks, you can admire the many types of towering trees, flowers and plants along the way.

    You will come across authentic works of art, like the statue of João Gonçalves Zarco, one of the discoverers of the island, as you walk toward the east end of the city.

    The avenue ends at the emblematic Cathedral of Funchal, which was commissioned by King Manuel I in the 15th century..

    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.
