As part of the SABOREA Madeira project, APCA implements the Conventual Sweets Route on the ground.
This is a 3-hour walking trail, which unveils the history of sweets practiced in the convents of the city of Funchal. The route takes place every Friday in November, starting at 10 am at the Santa Clara Convent.

During the tour, moments of tasting conventual sweets are included, as well as moments of music, performed by Giancarlo Mongelli and the Associação Melro Preto, and moments of theater provided by Teatro Bolo do Caco. 

ATTENTION: We inform you that due to high demand, places are sold out. To stay up to date with possible new dates, stay tuned to the APCA newsletter, as well as social media and the website.
