Funchal is the capital city of Madeira, a Portuguese island located off the coast of Morocco. Madeira is known for having one of the most dangerous airports in the world (less so now the over-water runway has been extended, but still pretty hairy). If you're a fearful flyer, I suggest you don't Google 'airport landings Madeira' before you go.
Nevertheless, Madeira is a popular island getaway for those looking for a relaxing holiday destination in Europe and you'll find lots of Madeira package holidays if that's your thing. Personally I love the Funchal street art and the interesting traditional food and drink in Madeira (beer and ice-cream cocktails and banana fish for example).
