Photographer's Note

Funchal.

End of trip with the cable car above the roofs of Funchal. In the distance, a yellow building catches the eye. This is the Forte de São Tiago, built in 1614 to protect the city from pirate attacks. The fort has retained its military prerogatives until 1992, when the regional government of Madeira decides to reallocate cultural activities. Today, the building houses a contemporary art museum and a restaurant.

Overlooking the fort, you can see the Igreja (church) do Socorro.
