The museum of contemporary art of Funchal is in the old fortress which protects the harbour of Funchal

My experience, Explo description: 

The fortress is 400 years old. It has yellow walls and a great view over the sea. It’s now a museum with some paintings but the most interesting part of the visit is the fortress.

Yellow walls of the fortress. It looks like a peaceful place. From the top of the fortress, you have a great view on the sea. Nowadays, it’s hard to imagine this place like a fighting place !

My personal recommendations: 

In front of the fortress, there is a beach (pebble) with clear water. It’s the perfect place to swim in Funchal.

How getting there: 

By walk. It’s in the east of Funchal, near the sea.
