Christmas and New Year´s Eve: festivities
Christmas is a magnificent time to visit the island of Madeira, because the streets are lit and decorated with themes related to Christmas´s season. The typical dish is Carne-vinha-d'alhos, which is served in most bars and restaurants in Funchal (meat cooked with wine and garlic). At the end of the night of São Silvestre, the most anticipated spectacle takes place: the fantastic firework, which runs for about 10 minutes, and whose event concentrates hundreds of people by the bay of Funchal.
Come and view the New Year's Fireworks from the best place, Hotel Madeira's - Panorama Terrace Bar!
