Golden Gate Grand Café

It is a building with its esplanade on the corner of Avenida Arriaga and Avenida Zarco, which served as a support to a small hotel that existed at the entrance of the city. The café became a stopping point for tourists and residents and was once a meeting place for Funchal’s elite.

The writer Ferreira de Castro called it “The Corner of the World” and the Golden Gate continues to live up to this phrase today because of the diversity of cultures it brings together.
