Church of St Martin in Funchal, Madeira


    

Construction of today's Church of St Martin (Igreja de São Martinho) in Funchal, Madeira took over 20 years due to a lack of financing. The church is the second at the same location. The first eventually became too small for the area.

Social Media Description

Do you visit churches when you travel to other countries?

Since we had previously explored Funchal, Madeira on foot, during our return visit on a 2017 transatlantic cruise, we joined a small group tour to Nuns' Valley. One of the stops was at a viewpoint where we captured this awesome view of the Church of St. Martin surrounded by the beautiful blue waters of the Atlantic.

Fun fact: The island of Madeira is actually a part of the country of Portugal!

What church left a lasting a impression on you?
