Avenida Arriaga is one of the oldest and most dynamic streets of Funchal.
An important urban center, full of history, tradition and craftwork trades, which makes it an unavoidable landmark of Madeira capital’s lifestyle.
With narrow cobbled streets, secular houses and traditional restaurants, the entire length of this avenue is flanked by traditional Portuguese cobblestones, covered with majestic century trees.
One of the center’s most iconic buildings is the Golden Gate. An historical site where the society of Funchal and visitors from around the world gathered alike.
Back in 1933, one of the most translated Portuguese novelists in the World, Ferreira de Castro, coined a phrase: The Corner of the World! ‘which’ gained more and more popularity with time, being a part of the town’s very heritage.
