“The Fortress on top of Funchal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

- free entry, not included in tours, ask the locals for "fortaleza do pico" or just point
- stone walls, great views of the city
- small museum inside, explains a bit of history
- not many things to see, 20 min visit is ok
- close to Quinta das Cruzes, so you can include that in a one and a half hour trip
