Santuário da Nossa Senhora da Paz

Durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial, o funchal foi alvo de dois bombardeamentos por submarinos alemães.
O povo acorreu a Nossa Senhora do Monte a pedir a paz e, numa cerimónia realizada no Largo da Fonte, a 27 de Julho de 1917, foi feito um voto pelo pároco do Monte, Padre José Marques Jardim. "Se Deus, por intermédio de Nossa Senhora, nos der a paz, cessando a guerra, eu me comprometo a levantar um memorial como gratidão e suplica pela paz".
A tão desejada paz foi assinada no ano seguinte.
A primeira pedra foi lançada a 1 de Novembro de 1923, sendo o monumento inaugurado a 14 de Agosto de 1927.

O monumento de gosto neo-românico, é encimado por uma imagem da Virgem com cinco metros e meio de altura, assentando num pedestal com quatro colunas romanas, na base do qual existe um baixo-relevo em bronze, alusivo à aparição da Virgem aos pastorinhos na Fonte da Telha. A base do monumento é envolvida por um terço do rosário, composto por correntes de navios torpedeados no porto do Funchal durante a Grande Guerra e pedras da ribeira de Santo António, tudo transportado em procissão por cerca de 300 homens, na maioria carreiros do Monte, em romagem efectuada a 1 de Novembro de 1927.

Sanctuary of Our Lady of Peace

During the first World War, Funchal was targeted by two bombs launched from German submarines.
The people of Funchal rushed in haste to Our Lady of Monte to ask for peace and, in a ceremony carried out in the Largo da Fonte, on 27 July 1917, a promisse was made by the parish priest of Monte, Father José Marques Jardim, that, if God, by intercession of Our Lady, would grant peace, and an end to the war, he would undertake to build a memorial in gratitude and as a plea for peace.
This so desired peace,was granted in the following year.
The first stone was cast on 1 November 1923, and the monument was inaugurated on 14 August 1927.

The monument, in neo-Roman style, bears an image of the Virgin, five and half meters in height, standing on a pedestal on four Roman columns. At its base, there is a bas-relief in bronze, in memory of the apparition of the Virgin Mary to the little shepherds.
The base of the monument is wrapped is a rosary composed of chains from the ships that were torpedoed in the port of Funchal during the World War, and stones from the river of Santo António. All of these materials where transported in a procession of pilgrims, by some 300 men,most of whom were the workers of the Monte route, on 1 November 1927
