Troço da Antiga Muralha do Funchal
This defensive wall ended by the São Tiago Fortress, with a door giving access to the sea, from which there are still some remains in the access to São tiago beach. With the construction of Campo Dom Carlos I, the walls of this part of town were destroyed and there’s only a section left between São Tiago Fortress and Largo do Corpo Santo.
