Madeira is an autonomous region of Portugal, located off the coast of Africa. It's known for its stunning natural beauty, rich history, and warm hospitality.

The archipelago is made up of 2 main islands - Madeira & Porto Santo - as well as several smaller ones.

It was first discovered by Portuguese explorers in 1419, and since then, it has been a popular destination for travelers seeking sun, sea, and adventure!

Discoveries
First, let’s delve into the history of Madeira. Discovered by the Portuguese in early 15th century, the island was initially used as a base for explorers and traders heading to Africa and the Americas. However, it wasn’t long before settlers began to take advantage of Madeira’s fertile soil, which was perfect for growing sugarcane. This led to the development of an extensive sugar industry, which brought great wealth to the island and led to the construction of many traditional, beautiful buildings and monuments. One of the most unique aspects of Madeira is its geography!

Landscape
The island is incredibly mountainous, with steep cliffs, lush valleys, and rugged coastlines. The island’s highest peak, Pico Ruivo, rises to a height of 1,862m, providing stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Madeira is also home to some of the world’s most beautiful gardens, including the Botanical Garden of Madeira and the Monte Palace Tropical Garden.

But that’s not all – Madeira is also famous for its levadas, which are narrow channels that carry water from the mountains to the fields and orchards below. These levadas run for over 2,000km throughout the island, and walking along them is a popular activity for tourists. The walks can range from easy strolls to challenging hikes, but all of them offer breathtaking views of the island’s natural beauty.

In short, Madeira is a true hidden gem – a destination that offers stunning views, delicious food, and endless opportunities for adventure.
What are you waiting for? Come and experience the magic of this beautiful island for yourself!

Let's get to the GOOD part, shall we?

It’s no secret that the Portuguese culture is so associated with food that every celebration means an opportunity to celebrate life with eating, drinking and being merry.

When it comes to food, Madeira is a paradise for seafood lovers. The island's location in the middle of the Atlantic means that fresh fish and shellfish are always on the menu. Some of the most popular dishes include espada com banana (scabbard fish with banana), lapas (limpets), and bolo do caco (a type of bread). Madeira is also famous for its wine, which is made from a grape variety unique to the island.
