the Cruzes fountain

fevereiro 19, 2014 Paulo Camacho 0 Comentários


I have long time to want to photograph this old fountain in Cruzes, a few meters from the entrance of Quinta das Cruzes Museum. One day this week I do not put it off anymore.

I find this old building in a Funchal road, in Rua da Carreira. I don't know it's history but I believe that have a family blazon, like you see on the top of the door. Today, I think this house no have no one to live. At least that is what appears. It's another building with architectural and historical value to the city.
