The twinning agreement between the cities of Funchal and Santos was signed in 27th of October of 1988.
As a result of this agreement, the name of this sister city was attributed to three roads in Funchal City: “Vereda da Cidade de Santos”, “Rua Cidade de Santos” and “Impasse 3 da Rua Cidade de Santos”.

Santos is a São Paulo municipality, state of Brazil, founded in 1546 by the Portuguese nobleman Brás Cubas. It is partially located on the São Vicente island which harbors both the city of Santos and the city of São Vicente, and partially on the mainland.
