    The tiny chapel in the heart of the old town - the Capelado Corpo Santo - is the 16th century fishermen's chapel. Their former boat yard near here was filled in to build the cable-car station :-S

    Jesuit Church

    In the town square is the Jesuit Chuch, founded in1574. With its lovely facade, decorated by figures of the saints, I thought it was more impressive looking than the Cathedral of Funchal.

    just look at those tiles...

    Paved with decorous curves of black and white stones and bordered by whitewashed buildings outlined in dark basalt, it is an attractive place to sit and people watch.
