Madeira

The flower island

The plant lovers' paradise in the Atlantic

Madeira has been a popular destination during the winter months for many northern Europeans since the 19th century due to its pleasant, warm climate and lush greenery. The eroded volcanic ash has provided fertile soil for the island’s multifarious vegetation of both tropical and subtropical plants with a colourful floral sea and an abundance of exciting fruits.

The Atlantic ocean's dining room

The town’s fruit, vegetable and flower market radiates s a good trading atmosphere and the many colours are a real feast for the eyes. Throughout Funchal, there are many cosy local coffee bars and small restaurants to enjoy during your holiday, including the gastronomic part of it. Try one of the island’s specialities, such as <em>Espada</em>, the deep-water fish, the black swordfish, which, despite its appearance, has an excellent taste. It is prepared in many ways, but the most classic recipe in Madeira is with a small sweet banana.
