Varadouros Square (Largo dos Varadouros) - The Town Gate Print E-mail

The Town Gate located in Varadouros Square, is a restitution of the old Town Entrance that used to close the defensive wall of Funchal. The Governor D. Lourenço de Almeida ordered this Gate in 1689, which was demolished in 1911.

The renovation work followed a historical study and the porch was built in concrete cement and materials from the Region. Original pieces were brought from the Museum Quinta das Cruzes such as the crown, royal weapons and the tombstone.
