Also, admire the picturesque details of cobblestone floors and the façades of the old houses on Rue de Santa Maria. Next, continue towards Monte and visit the Church of Our Lady of the Mount.

What people are saying about Igreja Paroquial de São João da Foz do Douro, Portugal

The tour was very interesting to get a first overview of Funchal. The driver pointed out some things worth visiting on the way to Monte which made it easy to find again. The pickup after the ride with the toboggan (not included in the price!) worked just as well as the pickup at the hotel.

We had such a lovely time with Andrea and Luis. They were very accommodating and took us through the best sites. Both very knowledgeable and the information they provided us with was very interesting. We would recommend this as a must if you are visiting Madeira!
