Câmara de Lobos (Fisherman's Village)

Câmara de Lobos (The fishing Village)  – Translated to English means Chamber of sea lions and is located on the south-eastern side of Madeira. Câmara de Lobos is home to a critical historical legacy. In addition to its monuments and stunning Atlantic landscapes, the municipality stands out for its centuries-old fishing tradition.  It was built around a long natural harbour which is created by the black basalt rock that contrasts magnificently with the turquoise waters.

At Camara de Lobos, the viewpoint where Winston Churchill took  painting has his name on it. Churchill worked on his war memoranda and was impressed by the various landscapes that Madeira had to offer[and still offers], such as Camara de lobos, where he painted various pictorial depictions of the village.

Upon arriving at the village you will find many small colourful boats in the bay just waiting for fisherman to take them out to sea. Children and adults socialize in the narrow streets, a place where most of their time is spent.
