Last Day on Madeira

Funchal Farmer Market

We returned the rental car this morning. Thankfully, we were able to return the car unscathed (both us and the car). It was now time to explore Funchal. Our hotel is in the city, so most of the sights were within walking distance.

We started the day by walking along the ocean front, where we were treated to nice views of Funchal and the surrounding cliffs. It was quite hot today; we saw other tourists swimming and sunbathing at their resorts.  There are no sandy beaches on Madeira so the resorts create tidal pools for swimming, by adding concrete to existing rock outcroppings. We have a beautiful pool at our hotel and I planned to swim when we returned from our city stroll, but it cooled off in the early evening.   

The Christmas spirit is in full swing on Madeira. In amongst a park, we found a child-sized Christmas village and train.  We also saw many red capped Christmas mushroom decorations. Other decorations were typical of what you would see in Canada: decorated Christmas trees (using Norfolk Pine), giant Christmas balls and snowmen, a life-sized nativity scene and a life-sized Santa with his reindeer.  A live orchestra played christmas carols in the town centre.  It’s strange to hear “Let it snow” and “frosty the snowman” in such a warm place.

We made our way to the farmer’s market to check out some of the local fruit. I sampled a banana passion fruit, lemon passion fruit, philodendron fruit, bananas, mango and anona. We decided to buy one banana passion fruit each to enjoy later. There were many other interesting fruits and berries to try but we held back because we were feeling pressured to buy more.  

As we strolled along, we could hear live music (pianos and violins) coming from restaurants along the way.   We stopped in at an art gallery and some gardens.  The architecture  and bright colour of the gallery contrasted nicely with the ocean backdrop.  On the way back to the hotel, we had some gelato and coffee to give us a bit of a boost.  

Off to Lisbon tomorrow!
