Do & See
The cascades and footpaths are an open door for researchers and amateurs. They are also the delight of open-air sports fans – such as trekking, climbing, canyoning and mountain biking, among others. Most of these activities can be planned in hotels or through specialized agencies, but there are marked and identified courses in most part of the routes. A means of communication in expansion on the island is the teleferic – in spite of it not being recommended to people suffering from vertigo. There are also cultural centres spread throughout the Island. The most important ones being currently located in Calheta, home of Casa das Mudas, and in Funchal, such as the Madeira Story Center, the Vicentes Museum of Photography, the Municipal Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Sacred Art and the Frederico de Freitas Museum.
