Averages for Madeira in November
Even throughout the winter months, the Portuguese island of Madeira enjoys warmth and sunshine. Travellers seeking sun flock to the small island during this time of year.
In November, temperatures are still
reminiscent of the summer, with highs of 22 and lows of just 15.5 degrees Celsius
expected. November marks the start of the ‘rainy season’ in Madeira, but with a
very low average of 4 inches falling over 11 days, Madeira
is typically a rather dry country, although humidity is high.
If there’s one thing Madeira is famous for, it’s wine. Wine lovers will enjoy
the Festival do Vinho do Bordado e do Artesanato da Madeira - translated as the
festival of wine, embroidery and handicrafts - which takes place throughout Madeira in November.
The festival also offers a great opportunity to browse the many arts and crafts stalls set up across Funchal. With homemade traditional Madeiran ornaments and embroidered garments, it’s a perfect chance to pick up some unique and original Christmas presents for friends and family back home.
For travellers who aren’t able to visit during the festival but still want to experience the local wines, there are plenty of other opportunities on the island. The Artur de Barros e Sousa Lda and the Old Blandy Wine Lodge, both located in Funchal, offer guided tours of the facilities and offer tasting samples to parched visitors.
