    Monument to Our Lady of Peace Monument to Our Lady of Peace Monument to Our Lady of Peace Monument to Our Lady of Peace Monument to Our Lady of Peace Monument to Our Lady of Peace Monument to Our Lady of Peace

    The Monument to Our Lady of Peace is undoubtedly the greatest monument in a symbolical and dimensional level of the entire island and city of Funchal.

    This work was created by the architect Emanuel Ribeiro and was ordered to be built after the Madeiran people requested peace to Our Lady of Monte.

    This request was made after the submarine attack on the Port of Funchal in 1917, during World War I, which sank various ships.

    The chains of these ships were used to construct a rosary that lies at the feet of Our Lady of Peace, framing the monument.

    Ten years after the attack, the promise made to Our Lady of Monte was fulfilled and in 14th of August, the day of Our Lady of Monte, the monument was inaugurated.

    banner Funchal, the capital of the Madeira archipelago, was declared a city in the 1500s, and became an important point between the old and new worlds. The laid-back city owes much of its historical prominence to the white gold, the Madeiran sugar. Today Funchal is known for its appealing temperatures, wine and crafts. Top spots to visit include the open Worker's Market, Blandy's Wine Lodge and the Sacred Art Museum. Friendly locals, walkable streets and cheap taxis make the city easy to get around.
