Funchal is the capital of the Portuguese archipelago of Madeira. It is surrounded by hills and is known for its harbour, gardens and Madeira wine cellars. This modern, cosmopolitan and rejuvenated city is famous for its luxurious restaurants, brand new four and five star hotels and excellent year-round climate. In addition, the famous footballer Cristiano Ronaldo has his origins here, so the cult of footballer worship is commonplace among tourists.
Finally, Funchal has been voted the best island destination in Europe at the World Travel Awards for eight consecutive years.
