Praça Comercio e Industria, Funchal, Madeira, 2019[open in full screen]  

 
  Previous square Praça do Carmo, Funchal

Official name of this square/court yard is Praça ACIF – Associação Do Comércio E Indústria Do Funchal.

Approach is most unsuspicious one. We found it when in the Dona Mecia Coffee place [looking for best Pastel de Nata in Funchal]. While there we noticed that lot of people were just passing true the patio and disappearing somewhere in the background. Being us we of course decided to explore where they were going.

  Following them we found one quite extraordinary space. It was developed behind ACIF building facing Avenida Arriaga.

ACIF – Associação Do Comércio E Indústria Do Funchal – is a non-profit private legal entity which, as a business association, represents the companies that carry out their activity in the areas of Commerce and Services, Industry and Tourism, (trade 42%, services 29%, tourism 18%, industry 11%). As the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, its responsibilities are broadened, requiring more general interventions at regional level.

  Approach from Avenida Arriaga is even more unrecognizable [photo in the middle bellow].

Space is very attractive, quite pleasant to spent some time there or just in the evening enjoy sounds coming from the yard of small Presbyterian Church where regular concerts are held.

Even just passing to make shortcut to the streets behind is recommendable.

Next square Largo do Pelourinho, Ponta do Sol, Madeira
