There are a few ways to see the city of Funchal from sky. By helicopter …. by cable car …. from the cable balloon at the Marina.
But did you know there is another way to see all the Funchalense rooftops from above? Namely from a paraglide.
A guy from Madeira started his paragliding stunt from the mountain side behind Funchal and went all the way down …. to the beach at the Marina (maybe to go for a swim later on). All this (except the swimming part) he has captured it on film and placed it on YouTube.
