The Regional Assembly is installed in the Funchal Customs building. It is a fine example of civil architecture and bears the characteristics of the monarch age.
The Regional Assembly is now installed in a building commissioned circa 1519 by King Manuel I for the Funchal Customs Office.
This fine example of civil architecture features a Gothic style and all the decoration that characterizes the Manueline style, having undergone various changes over the 17th and 18th centuries.

In 1982 the adaptation work began on the building for the installation of the Madeira Regional Assembly on the site. The work, under architect Chorão Ramalho, was concluded 5 years later, the Assembly having been inaugurated in December of 1987.
In the courtyard, next to the chapel, can be seen the "Trilogy of Powers" statue, by Madeiran sculptor Amândio Sousa.
