Quinta das Cruzes
Now a museum, the Quinta das Cruzes is a quintessential old Madeiran manor house complete with gardens and a private chapel. Originally the home of João Gonçalves Zarco, the Portuguese captain who discovered Madeira, it was remodelled in the 18th century into a stylish home by the wealthy Lomelino family. The exhibits here examine the life of Madeira's well-to-do from the 15th to the 19th century in an aptly aristocratic environment, the high-ceilinged mansion packed with priceless antiques from across the globe.
Museu de Arte Sacra
Madeira's top art collection is housed in the former 16th-century bishop's palace, which dominates one side of Praça do Município. Purchased with the proceeds of Madeira's sugar trade, the highlights of the collection are the priceless pieces of Flemish art commissioned by wealthy Madeiran merchants and landowners for their quintas – some of these figures even make a pop-up appearance in the pictures themselves. In the 1950s it was decided to gather all religious art in one place for safekeeping.
Curral das Freiras
The village of Curral das Freiras (Nun's Valley), set at the bottom of a huge cauldron of rock, is one of the most popular day trips from Funchal, and is home to that typical Madeiran combination of awe-inspiring mountain scenery, an easy-going walk, local specialties and welcoming locals. The village is known for its chestnuts and a cherry liquor called ginja , drunk across the island from shot glasses made of dark chocolate. It's just a short (but almost vertical) bus ride from the bustle of Funchal's seafront.
