The mountainous isle of Madeira has been a popular European destination for years. The idyllic island is perfect for exploring with its beautiful beaches, stunning lava formed landscapes and lush, green forests. But sampling the famed Madeira wines is also an absolute must.
Jardins Do Palheiro
This lovely park, which looks like an English garden at first glance, actually combines tropical flora with hundreds of plants from all over the world. It’s actually several delightful gardens in one.
Mercado Dos Lavradores
Located in the open patio of an historic building, this is the place to sample local fruits like Madeiran mangos, bananas, philodendres and maracujas. You can also buy fresh-caught fish in a separate hall.
