Cathedral de Sé

Almost always the first thing to be visited once set foot in Funchal is the Sé, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, whose bell tower dominates the skyline citizen. The church, dating back to the sixteenth century, is a perfect compendium of sacred architecture Lusitanian. In it, in fact, they occur the same features already met in Lisbon, namely the successful combination of Hispano-Arabic and late Gothic which in turn refers to external domination and colonial history of Portugal. Noteworthy the alfarje, the spectacular cedar ceiling with ivory and shell deposits, and the high altar in the Gothic style.
