Madeira, an autonomous region of Portugal, is an archipelago comprising four islands of the northwest coast of Africa. It is known for its namesake wine and warm subtropical climate.

The main island of Madeira is volcanic, green and rugged, with high cliffs, pebbly beaches and settlements on deltas of the Fajã River. Funchal is the capital and it has botanic gardens and is known for its harbour and a large New Year's fireworks show.

Madeira Island is one of Europe's most beautiful travel locations with many thousands of tourists returning year after year. It offers not only an all year round summer climate, as well as, wonderful fauna and flora, but it is also virtually crime-free and one of the safest holiday destinations in the world!

The island is also the birthplace of one of the most famous athletes on the planet, Portugal and Manchester United’s striker Cristiano Ronaldo.
