It’s difficult to walk around in Funchal without noticing the many bronze statues adorning traffic roundabouts, this’s on on our walk in to the city near Reid’s Palace Hotel.
This restaurant is famous for its seafood and has live lobsters in a tank by the door but the alley of flowering plants and shrubs is lovely.
Lunch in the Marina.
