Also renowned for its shopping, Lisbon is home to the biggest shopping mall on the Iberian Peninsula, Centro Commercial Colombo, and for those who prefer to shop in local markets there is a fascinating flea market at the Campo de Santa Clara. Lisbon offers an amazing variety of sea food restaurants; the traditional Portuguese national dish of bacalhau (salted cod) is eaten everywhere, all year round, day and night.
FUNCHAL, situated beneath rocky mountains on a natural harbour in the South East of Madeira, is a truly unique experience. Named after its abundance of fennel (funcho), the five hundred year-old Capital, which is easily accessible on foot, is an enchanting modern city that is also home to a number of historic monuments, squares, art galleries, sophisticated modern shops, quaint markets, botanical gardens and a 15th century Cathedral.
