The municipality of Câmara de Lobos has 5 parishes and was established in 1835. It is in Câmara de Lobos that the best kebabs are made on laurel wood, the traditional “poncha” (drink) and Madeira wine. It is the fishing port for black swordfish and home to some of the most beautiful landscapes and places in Madeira, such as Cabo Girão, Curral das Freiras, Câmara de Lobos Bay and the Estreito de Câmara de Lobos Vineyards. It is the second most populous municipality in Madeira, with around 40,000 inhabitants, and a land of young people, as around 45% of the population is under 25 years old. Over time, the city has essentially survived from fishing and agriculture, with the production of wine, bananas and other fruit species being particularly important in the regional economy. Today, the municipality is more focused on services, with tourism having a decisive role in this chapter, as it is the engine of the regional economy.
