window of the cathedral - Funchal Daily Photo

window of the cathedral

One of the windows of the cathedral of Funchal, the oldest most monument of the island. Construction began in the late fifteenth year of the discovery of Madeira by the Portuguese and continued by the beginning of the next century. Over the years have been remodeled. I could say that is a magnificent monument, but as I am not "painter". I say that has its own architecture, and undoubtedly value.
Uma das janelas da sé do Funchal, o monumento mais antigo da ilha. A construção começou no final do século XV, ano da descoberta da Madeira pelos portugueses, e prolongou-se pelo início do seguinte. Ao longo dos tempos têm sido obras de restauro. Poderia dizer que é um monumento magnífico, mas como não sou "pintor", digo que tem a sua arquitectura própria, e, indiscutivelmente valor.

  4. Hi Paulo,

    Yes Goa is so much a part of the Portuguese Culture. We have people here who speak Portuguese even today. There is a whole lot of Portuguese architecture which is dotting Goa at various places. But unfortunate that it is slowly being replaced by the modern constructions.

    You have a nice blog and I am gonna follow it for a long time to come..Thanks
