Advice for this Sunday

Loving our first visit to Madeira. This Sunday will sadly be our last full day and we want to finish a great week well. We're based at the Pestana Bay and are interested in experiencing a palm procession for Palm Sunday (can't work out what time/if that will be happening at the cathedral) and/or visiting somewhere else special. We've done Cabo Girao, Camara de Lobos, Monte cable car and toboggan. Happy to get a taxi if not too far but not up to a mega travelling day like Porto Santos.

Any advice for a great last day (with a 12 yr old and 16yr old in tow, though they are pretty willing on the whole!)?

Thanks!

Try the English Church, behind Dolce Vita Shopping centre, their main mass on Sunday is 11.00 and will be celebrating Palm Sunday, during that service.

There is Mass in English in small church Penha De Franca at 10 am on Sundays. There may be Palm Sunday celebrations there. Entrance is across from Prince Albert Pub.

Thank you! Anything else not churchy, recommended for a good last day and open on a Sunday either in Funchal or a taxi ride away

When in Monte did you go round the Tropical Gardens? You can get the No. 48 bus from the Lido area.

I would also suggest a trip to Monte however Sunday service on the 48 is poor but it can be done .Information can be found on most bus stops in the Lido area anyway have a nice day.

I will be going to the English Church in the morning. You could fit in a palm sunday service and maybe a catamaran trip. In February I did this on a Sunday afternoon and the views of Funchal and the dolohins and whales made for a very pleasant trip.
