Arcadas de São Francisco Shopping Centre
This small shopping centre, found next to the Municipal Garden, is home to a good selection of shops, cafés and restaurants; it has a time-limited car park with space for 69 vehicles.
This shopping centre occupies a building alongside the premises of the old São Francisco monastery.
The property was acquired by Charles Ridpath Blandy in 1840 and later transformed into cellars. When visiting this shopping centre, take advantage of the opportunity to visit the São Francisco cellars, “The Old Blandy Wine Lodges”, where you can learn more about the history of Madeira wine, enjoy a tasting and maybe even buy a few bottles.
This shopping centre is located close to several buildings of interest and services in downtown Funchal. In this area can be found a tourist information office and a branch of Banco de Portugal (Portuguese Central Bank), as well as other banks and postal services.
