• Rua Queimada de Cima, Funchal

The names of the streets lying a bit further up left from the Sé Cathedral are related to events, places or persons that somehow marked this area.

For example, the Rua do Aljube got its name from the ecclesiastical jail that was located in the Cathedral’s tower; the streets Queimada de Cima and Queimada de Baixo were named after the big fire that started in this area in 1594; and the Rua do Bispo recalls the Bishop’s residence in the former Bishop’s Palace, nowadays the Sacred Art Museum.
