According to this legend, the parish of Machico, chief town of the municipality and city, was one of the settings of this tale, hence the name Machico.
Officially, the settlement of Madeira Island began in 1420. And it is around that time that the decision was made to divide the Island into two captaincies: Machico and Funchal. The settlement was made by Portuguese and Africans.
