GPS Coordinates: Latitude 32°38'52.76"N Longitude 16°53'50.68"W
This special and luxurious hotel is located in the historic centre of Funchal. Within a 5 minute walk you’ll find many of Madeira’s landmarks such as the Fish and Flower market, the Monte cable car station or the São Tiago Fort.
One of the old town’s main attractions, besides the charming architecture of the early settlers, is a well known ‘secret’ amongst locals and tourists: there is a large variety of excellent restaurants and all of them within easy walking distance from the hotel!
Not far from the hotel’s front door is the Socorro church, a lovely example of a baroque church that curiously has several names, Igreja de São Tiago and Igreja de Santa Maria Maior. In the old part of town and towards the harbour of Funchal is the Contemporary Art Museum, the Corpo Santo Chapel, the Madeira Story Centre and the beautiful Almirante Reis Garden. A pleasant stroll along the coast towards Praia Formosa will lead to the small public Lido complex with a swimming pool and access to the sea.
