Funchal Things to Do: 239 reviews and 449 photos


From the steam train of ancient times to the most sophisticated cable car of today, Funchal is once again connected to the breathtaking beauty of Monte, which lies in the mountains above the city.
This is an exciting way to show Madeira's hidden beauty without any harm to the environment.The departure station is at the Parque Almirante Reis, located in the old part of the town. This station has good parking conditions, and fits in well with the renovation plans for the old part of the town, which is now almost complete.
The Monte Station is situated near Monte Palace Tropical Garden, at Caminho das Babosas and can receive up to 800 passengers per hour.

Address: Funchal city, near the Old town or "Zona Velha"
