Funchal, Portugal

Funchal is located on an island, owned by Portugal, called Madeira.  It’s where most people on the island live – it’s such a pretty town with cute little restaurants, cafes, and shops… My favorite thing of Funchal were all the walking streets with black and white stones making a different pattern on every street in town!
