Quinta das Cruzes

Recommended
Once the home of city founder Zarco, this quinta is now an Applied Arts museum. The old storerooms are devoted to 16C Portuguese furniture found in homes of Funchal. In the last room is a Flemish altarpiece dating from the second half of the 15C depicting the Nativity. The house is set amidst a botanical garden planted with kapok trees, dragon trees and araucarias. A quirky archaeological park-cum-outdoor museum displays some fine Manueline windows and a fragment of Funchal's pillory.
