Nossa Senhora da Paz Sanctuary

About 2 km from Monte, in Terreiro da Luta, stands the biggest monument in Madeira, dedicated to Our Lady of Peace. This monument was raised after German submarines bombed Funchal in 1917. At that time, the locals promised that if peace was restored, they would erect a statue in homage to Our Lady of Monte. Ten years later, a 5-metre marble statue was built.
