Photographer's Note

This photo was taken in the middle of the afternnon and shows the heat of the day. I also like the local men sitting on the steps watching the world go by.

Here is some information on the Cathedral courtesy of Chris Catling:

"Founded in 1485, Funchal's cathedral is one of Madeira's oldest buildings, and a link with island's original settlers. Portugal's King Maunel I was so proud of his newly acquired island province that, in 1485, he decided to send one of Lisbon's top architects, Pedro Enes, to build a new cathedral for Funchal. The building was completed in 1514 and is essentially a sombre building enlivened with Arabic-style architectural details."
