Funchal Old Town

1 Rua de Santa Maria

An enchanting mix of terra cotta–roofed buildings (some dating to the 15th century), colorful flowers and patterned mosaic pavements, Funchal Old Town still has the quaint small-town feel it did centuries ago. The main attractions are the Mercado dos Lavradores (farmers market), the Madeira Story Center, Forte São Tiago and the Feira da Lagartixa (flea market).
