FUNCHAL is the capital of Madeira. The city itself is nestled in a great natural amphitheatre, facing the Atlantic with a backdrop of dramatic mountains and located in the south of the island. Amidst banana plantations and wonderful gardens where flowers bloom all year round in the shelter of the verdant mountains, it is an extremely lush, green and relaxed city by day and busy and alive by night.
