Where is Funchal?

Funchal … capital of Madeira is situated in a bay area that is surrounded by mountains, some 1200 meters high, making it look like a natural amphitheatre. Funchal had gotten its name from the Portuguese word for fennel which is “funcho” a plant that Zarco and his explorers found when they had first arrived here in 1419.
