Funchal is the capital city of the autonomous region and island of Madeira in the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the most beautiful Portugese cities and because of it's location, set southwest off the coast of Portugal, it became an important port and a base for shipping from the 15th to the 17th century. Funchal is named as such because of the fennel or funcho that grows naturally in abundance here. In the town itself there is a lot of accommodation in Funchal as it is a major tourist town and the main transport hub for visitors coming from the mainland to Madiera. From your apartment in Funchal you could easily visit other tourist destinations on the island including Ribeira Brava, Porto Moniz, Santana and Curral das Freiras.
