Known as Igreja de Nossi Senhora do Monte, the patron Saint of Madeira, this church was constructed in 1741. Monte was the final resting place for Emperor Charles I of Austria, last of the Habsburg rulers of the Austro-Hungarian empire who died in exile on 1st April 1922, and pilgrims come to pray and fulfill vows by his tomb. The Emperor's last residence on the island was the Quinta do Monte close to the parochial church.
