With an area of approximately 75 km², Funchal is divided into 10 parishes, which extend virtually from the sea to the mountain. All of them have attractions worth visiting and, although the centre of Funchal is the jewel of the crown, the truth is that some of the most spectacular viewpoints are found in the parishes further away from the centre, at higher altitudes, offering panoramic views over the natural amphitheatre that embraces Funchal.
