History of Câmara de Lobos
Câmara de Lobos was the first place where João Gonçalves Zarco, the navigator who discovered the island, lived between 1420 and 1424.
Due to this, it became the first settlement created in Madeira by João Gonçalves Zarco himself. Câmara de Lobos became a civil parish in 1430.
The fist temple built in the island was Nossa Senhora do Calhau chapel, also called Capela dos Pescadores (Fishermen's Chapel).
On October 4, 1835, the civil parish of Câmara de Lobos became chief town of the municipality, which also included the civil parishes of Estreito de Câmara de Lobos, Curral das Freiras and Campanário.
