If you get the chance to visit Funchal during carnival time, do it! The locals take the processions very seriously, and the spectacle is said to be second only to Rio's carnival! Dozens of illuminated floats and hundreds of flamboyantly costumed dancers snake their way through Funchal's streets. Get there early to find a good spot to view this wonderful celebration, as the streets become very crowded indeed with spectators thronging to get a good glimpse of the performers.
