Whilst Four Weddings & a Funeral is pretty widely known, how many Madeira residents are familiar with the Three Museums & a Convent of San Pedro? These four historic and noteworthy attractions are within 100m of each other, do-able within a single day – except for the need to navigate around the Madeiran lunchbreak which extends variously from 12/12:30 to 2pm, depending on the museum.
