Madeira is a Portuguese island in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1000 km from mainland Portugal. Near Morocco. Around Madeira are the islands of Porto Santa, Ilhas Desertas and Ilhas Selvagens. The latter two are not inhabited by humans. The capital of Madeira is the city of Funchal. Two thirds of the population of Madeira live here. With 111,892 inhabitants, it is the largest city in Madeira. Madeira is a small island. It is about 27 km wide and about 57 km long. The coast consists largely of steep rock walls. The interior is formed by some high peaks, the highest mountain is the Pico Ruivo and the western tip is again inhospitable and uninhabited.
It is recommended to visit the capital Funchal. The city is beautifully situated by the sea. A walk on the Avenida do Mar boulevard is wonderful. You can dive straight into history at Fortaleza de São Tiago, the striking yellow fortress. It's really nice to go downtown. Stroll through Rua de Santa Maria where, in addition to nice cafes and restaurants, it is teeming with painted front doors.
One way to get a good look at Funchal from above is to take a cable car ride up. From the cable car you have a beautiful view of Funchal, the harbor and the sea. In clear weather you can even see Ilhas Desertas. When the weather is nice, you can sit on the terrace and enjoy a beautiful view during your lunch.
You will also find a whole network of levadas on Madeira. Levadas are ancient irrigation channels that bring water from the mountains in the wet north to the drier south. The network consists of more than 3000 kilometers of levadas, which lead through the natural parks Parque Natural da Madeira and Parque Ecológico do Funchal. The walks along the lavadas are almost all flat and it is a must to take such a walk during your stay in Madeira. The walks provide a moss green colored environment, breathtaking views and waterfalls.
