Your driver will provide you with information about Funchal´s history, the inhabitant's ways of life, typical products, and monuments, including the defensive fortresses built to protect the city from the pirate’s attacks.

Different monuments and notable sites will be pointed out, such as Museu das Cruzes (Gonçalves Zarco's first house), the convent of Santa Clara, the main Cathedral, the Jesuits Church, the Municipal Square and Garden, and the City Hall building, which was an old Palace that belonged to Conde de Carvalhal.
