In a remarkable spot, the island’s capital is a great place for walks between sea and mountain and has many viewpoints from which to admire it. The centre includes fine avenues, a cathedral built by the Knights of the Order of Christ in the late 15C, many museums, in particular the Decorative Arts Museum (Quinta das Cruzes) which includes some fine furniture. A pleasurable stroll around the beautiful gardens on the west side of town is the perfect way to conclude an exploration of Funchal.
