One of the most important Madeiran festivities happens in the month of October, in the municipality of Machico, east of Madeira, a religious festivity held on October, 8th and 9th.

The Festivity of "Senhor dos Milagres" commemorates the mudslide that occurred on October 9th, 1803, which destroyed the chapel where the precious figure of Our Lord of Miracles was located, dragging it into the sea. According to legend, the figure appeared three days later and was taken to Funchal’s Cathedral.
In 1813, the image was again restored to the chapel of "Senhor dos Milagres", in Machico.
