In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean lies Madeira, a volcanic island rich in vegetation. Its year-round sub-tropical climate provides perfect conditions for exotic flowers and fruit trees and makes it a colorful destination.
Funchal is Madeira's capital city and major harbour and is a great place to stay when visiting the island as it has lots of great restaurants and an amazing market for fresh fruit and vegetables.
