Stepping into the former monastery of St Francis - now a Wine Lodge owned by Blandy's - from the bustling main street of Funchal will transport you back into time with its courtyards, flowey balconies, old barrels and corking equipment. Its also a great place to sample the famous Blandy's Madeira wine ;-) Tours can be made of its museum and they will explain the process of the vintage madeiras. Tour lasts about 1 hour and costs 4 euros.
