The Municipality of Funchal will close the road that surrounds Praça do Município to Rua 5 de Outubro and eliminate the parking lots currently on the road. Only the road parallel to the College church will remain open. The works start already next year.
This measure is part of a plan of the municipality to give that square more space to make it a place more appreciated and used by the people of Madeira, with the promotion of more events.
The announcement was made this morning by Paulo Cafôfo, during the opening of the 3rd edition of “Mercado Sai à Rua”, event that marks the 77th anniversary of the Farmers Market.
