  • City of lovely squares and nice buildings - Funchal

The centre of Funchal has lovely squares with fountains, nicily decorated paved pedestrian streets and nice buildings like churches, mansions, some museums.
The Sé cathedral of Funchal (in the middle of the picture), started in 1485 and about 30 years later completed, is one of the oldest buildings in town. The interior of the cathedral is rather dark. The ceiling is made of wood in a Moorish style.

Directions: Centre Funchal, south of Rua de Aljube
