Portugal, Funchal Guide (B): Walking Tour Funchal Madeira

“History Tellers are part of the Madeiran Heritage project developed by the University of Madeiran Student’s Union (AAUMa) to publicize and preserve Madeira’s tangible and intangible heritage.

These enterprises have enabled the development of various projects aimed to support our most disadvantaged students at the University. The most significant of these projects is the Nourishment Fund which, since its creation in 2013, has financed thousands of meals for the students.
