Square of the Fountain

Fountain of Our Lady of the Monte

Square marble fountain built in the 19th century. Neoclassical reliquary fountain, topped by a spout and a glazed niche.

A fonte de Nossa Senhora que aparece na foto foi destruída em 1896 pela queda de um castanheiro, tendo sido reconstruída em julho ou setembro de 1897 e benzida a 3 de outubro de 1897.

In this area is the famous church of Nossa Senhora do Monte, the starting point of the traditional basket carts, the magnificent gardens of Monte and the old train station that served Monte on the route that connected downtown Funchal to Terreiro da Luta.
