I’m not going to say to much about this, for me it was a huge disappointment.
They have the whole bay of Funchal and promised all lights will be switched on TOGETHER on 1st December. This just didn’t happen, some came on here and some came on there. Lots will still being put up, or unwrapped from the plastic wrapping.
It just seems such an unorganised mess, which could easily be one of the best light switch ons in Europe.
If you have not been to Madeira before, then the lights will blow you away, but if your a regular visitor or live here, then the last few years have been a huge let down, and all the small side streets in Funchal are empty of lights, including the great big space outside Sé Cathedral.
On the plus side all the Christmas Huts along Avenue Arriaga are all open and trading, and looks really nice, its nice to see these open today, instead of towards the middle of December.
That is my little rant over, will be happy to hear your thoughts and comments.
