Nossa Senhora Livramento (Our Lady Deliverance) is the local parish church in Achadas da Cruz. Achadas da Cruz is a civil parish in the municipality of Porto Moniz in the Portuguese island of Madeira.The population in 2011 was 159,in an area of 7.88 km². It is situated on the north-western coast of the island. No children have been born in the parish between 2001 and 2009. My maternal grandparents came from this tiny town and generations of my family went to this church and are buried in the local cemetery. I feel in touch with my ancestors and my thoughts are with my mother and her stories of Madeira.
