A beautiful video created by Heitor Rodrigues of a Madeiran cherry picker (apanhador de cerejas) Sr. Agostinho of the village Jardim da Serra.
Enjoy the serenity and un-stressfulness when Sr. Agostinho picks the cherries to sell them at the Funchal Market (Mercado dos Lavradores). Next time you buy and eat a Madeiran cherry …. remember this video.

Funchal – Old Town (Zona Velha)
So Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Tim Robbins, Paul Verhoeven, Bernardo Bertolucci, Lynne Ramsay, Lukas Moodysson, David Cronenberg, David Lynch and other filmmakers … come and discover your next film location …. Madeira
The Old Town (Zona Velha) of Funchal is one of most attractive areas of the city. One can experience the real typical surroundings and local life of the city … taking you back in time to when the first settlement of the island started. One of the romantic narrow cobbled streets that we recommend is Rua de Santa Maria.
Rua de Santa Maria is the oldest street of the city, that was first laid out in 1430 through the neighborhood with the same name Santa Maria Maior. It has access to many old buildings with refurbished facades, which offer a glimpse into the city’s traditional architecture. It is a pleasant street to visit with several restaurants and cafes with typical decors and traditional interiors. Also you will enjoy of the numerous doors and entrances that have been revamped by artists, thanks to the project “Art of Open Doors” (Arte de Portas Abertas).
