Photographer's Note

João Gonçalves Zarco 1390-1467 was a Portuguese navigator and explorer who discovered the Madeira Islands.

Zarko was nobleman, same argue of Jewish converso origin.

He was on service of Prince Henry the Navigator's house, he led the fleet that discovered the island of Porto Santo (1419) and afterwards the island of Madeira (1420).

He was granted, as hereditary fief (Capitania), half the island of Madeira. Also, together with his fellow fleet commanders, Tristão Vaz Teixeira and Bartolomeu Perestrelo, he started the colonization of the islands in 1425.


I wonder how they felt to have iron in a bay without a port or any lights like this one in Funchal “to the sea view”
