Walking throughout the city of Funchal, I would like to call your attention to our pavements.
The Cathedral of Funchal, considered to be one of the masterpieces of Manueline art in Madeira , was built by order of king Manuel I and was consecrated in 1514.
In the 16th century, the arrivals of the French corsairs (Calvinists) and the Jesuits (Catholics) transformed Madeira.
Among the uncountable things to do and to see in Funchal, the remarkable Palácio de São Lourenço (Saint Lawrence Fortress) – 16 -17th century – is worth a visit.
A unique experience in a relatively small museum, that is right in the heart of Funchal.

The Blandy’s Wine Lodge once part of a 17th century Franciscan Monastery, bought in 1836 by the Blandy’s family, is an excellent wine show place.
