The City of Funchal was the first Atlantic City built outside the Old Continent.

At the end of the 15th century, with the Order of Christ of D. Manuel, Duke of Beja, he himself encouraged the planning and structuring of the progressive and prosperous Vila do Funchal, having the Town Halls erected, sending the pillory and erecting a new church, begun in 1493, later elevated to the category of Cathedral.
