Madeira Island

dynamic, creative and multifaceted destination

Situated in the Atlantic Ocean and with a mild climate, Madeira Island is one of the oldest and most prestigious tourist destinations in Europe. With an extensive natural reserve, the most famous is the prehistoric and exuberant Laurissilva (laurel) forest, which has been recognised by UNESCO as part of the World Natural Heritage.

Nature, the temperate climate, the unique waterfalls, the local traditions, the culture, the cuisine, water and mountain sports, immense gardens and flowers, popular festivals, embroidery and Madeira wine, and the cosmopolitan city of Funchal make Madeira a multi-faceted destination.
