For almost a month the Sé clock has been broken and its arrangement to fix this has not yet been scheduled. The technician, from Braga, is currently working on the clock engine so that the Sé will soon give the correct hours again.
According to a source connected to the Cathedral of Funchal, the request for help with its arrangement has already been made, but since it is a very specific piece of work, it must be a specialised professional to do so. The same source explained that, despite the hands being stopped, the Sé continues to give the right hours through the bell.
