The Fort Pico in Funchal
This fort offers an excellent tourist diversion for a lazy hour or two.With no admittance fee, tourist friendly opening hours and simply wonderful views over Madeira's capital city and bay, it should be high up on anyone's holiday agenda.
Although the fortification is more than three hundred and fifty years old, this is certainly not a dilapidated ruin. Indeed, today, the complex is a working building, housing the primary communications centre for the present day Funchal Navy.
So, if you want a picnic spot with wonderful views or simply wish to sample one aspect of the island's history, the Fort Pico makes a worthwhile destination.
One of the delights of Funchal is that, although it is a bustling working city, it has a lovely, tree-lined promenade. What better way is there to spend a hot, sunny day than to stroll along the seafront of Madeira's capital city?
The marina draws tourists with its various boat trips and helicopter tours. There are also numerous restaurants and cafes - many specialising in seafood.
However, you do not need to spend any money in order to enjoy the outlook across the blue Atlantic. There are a couple of monuments of historical interest along with many other, more modern sights to see.
So, enjoy the gentle pace of life beneath the palm trees and take your time to soak up the holiday atmosphere along Funchal Promenade.
