Harbour Terrace

VIEWS

a privileged belvedere . ..

A visit to Porto Santa Maria is a unique experience! And the Harbour Terrace is the best place to enjoy a 360º panoramic view of the city of Funchal.

Behind you lie Madeira’s impressive and majestic mountains and the roofs of Funchal’s pretty historic downtown district. To your left is the old São Tiago Fort decked out in rustic yellow tones, to the right your eyes catch sight of the sleek cruise liners weighing anchor in the Port of Funchal, while your field of vision takes in the soaring craggy cliffs and The Cliff Bay hotel. The Atlantic ocean stretches out before you as far as the eye can see. That’s the spectacular panoramic view you now get from the “Harbour Terrace” at the Porto Santa Maria hotel.

This lounge has been designed to make sure it isn’t short on creating comforts: cane recliners, comfy sofas all await you, so you can soak up the splendid views, immerse yourself in a good book, or simply lounge around and relax.

Enjoy the views!

Funchal

Old Town

city's historic centre . ..

The historical part of the city of Funchal, better known as the 'Old Town' is a point of great cultural and architectural interest for everyone who visits.

Its narrow streets and picturesque houses dating from the 15th century are full of history...The Porto Santa Maria hotel is right alongside the Rua de Santa Maria, one of the oldest streets on Madeira island, which gave the hotel its name.

Hotel Porto Santa Maria is ideal for those who want to experience the dynamic feel of the city, art, lifestyle and traditions whilst being close to the sea, or who want to get to know the history of Funchal through the various museums there, or who simply want to experience the exotic flavours of the Lavradores market.

Close to the hotel you can also visit São Tiago fort, built in the 17th century to protect the city from pirate attacks and extended in the 18th century. It was used by the military until 1992, when it was handed over to the Regional Government, and turned into a cultural centre. It is currently the home of the Modern Art Museum.

Just a stone's throw from the hotel lies the cable car that connects Funchal's old town to Monte.

One of the great novelties of the old town was the arts movement 'Arte de Portas Abertas'. The idea behind this innovative concept was to turn the doors of over 200 houses into canvases for artists.
