Monte Train Station Restoration Welcomed

Today, the 5th of July, a delegation from the Funchal Popular Youth (JP) of Funchal, visited the Interpretative Monte Train Centre in Largo da Fonte. 

Speaking on the importance of the work for the parish of Monte, JP President of Funchal, Simão Ferreira, declared that “in February 2020 the president of JP Madeira published a damning report on social media on the state of the former railway building, which at the time created a lot of media interest, causing,” she said “consternation among some, but today, with the work completed, we can confirm that it was the right attitude, at the right time.”

The JP Funchal believes that this work will provide a chance for Largo da Fonte and the entire Leite Monteiro Park to recover from the horror of its past (Monte Tree Tragedy), and that this will be the first step in recreating the area’s tourism profile.
