Street art in Funchal. Street art is one of the things I love the most while travelling in cities like Athens, Copenhagen, Paris, Porto and Lisbon.
I love the way street art blends into the buildings of a city and fills each nook and corner with colours and unexpected food for thoughts…
Street art in Funchal is another great attraction of the Island. Besides findind street art in the painted doors of Rua de Santa Maria in the old town, there are other excellent pieces scattered around the city.
The other day I took my new camera for a walk. Yes, I forgot to mention to you, that I won a new camera in a competition in FNAC MADEIRA, and I couldn’t be happier. Check my Instagram pictures to see the winning shots.

I used to go running 🏃♀️ on this side of town – the city port. Something about this place gives me a happy hour. The excitement of tourists arriving in the 🚢, the stunning views of Funchal bay and pieces of street art like this one ❤️. “Imagination in your hands” – it’s a good sign to remember. Have a great evening wherever you are…
