It was this traditional fishing village, situated five kilometres from Funchal, which inspired the late Sir Winston Churchill to paint its lovely surroundings. The village was given its name by the explorers João Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz Teixeira because of the shape of its bay and the many sea lions ('lobos') living there at the time.
Câmara de Lobos, apart from its wonderful bay, has several points of interest such as Pico da Torre, Curral das Freiras, Boca dos Namorados, Boca da Corrida and Cabo Girão.
Directions: Coming from Funchal, when you arrive at this recently designated 'city', you will be faced with a dazzling bay, the full beauty of which can only best admired from Pico da Torre.
