Overview

Art Center Caravel is a unique project, realized in a renovated historic building, and offering a fresh perspective on contemporary art. Interesting, bold, and, most important, fun and convenient - in the heart of the old town, two steps away from a beautiful ocean promenade. "We inspire" - say the organizers of the Art Center Caravel, being inspired by the beauty of Madeira themselves

Found this whilst on a walk and strolled around looking at the art. Some of it was out of our price range but we did buy a small print.

Gallery is located 3 minutes far from Teleferico. Marvelous, irrational, sex, fun ARTS exhibitions. Seaside lifestyle and nature views of the island, irrational, emotional experience. You’d better take it serious, the author of the famous Funchal murals on the buildings is presented in full. Grabbed...More

Great place to visit on Madeira. And many thanks to the art-curator Cefyn. The trip wouldn’t be so exciting without him. The Art Center actually has two parts – the gallery and the shop. Art is very interesting. And the souvenirs – it’s brilliant. From...More

This is my 'go-to' shop when in Madeira for gifts that are both beautiful and unusual. You never know what you might find, but rarely do I leave empty handed. There is a wide range of artistic styles on display, and prices seem fair. As...More
