Funchal is the capital of Madeira, an island off the North-West African coast. The city boasts grand avenues adorned on both sides with beautiful fragrant Jacaranda trees. In the  former fishing district, the Zona Velha, low houses line the narrow alleyways and wonderful restaurants stand warm and inviting. In the heart of the city stands the beautiful Sé Cathedral dedicated in 1514. The cathedral features a finely carved wooden ceiling adorned with ivory marquetry.
