A parenthesis is a more or less long episode of existence, which is considered to be outside the normal course of existence. Going to discover Madeira was our parenthesis in this year 2020. Getting away from the bad news and rediscovering the joys of marveling at nature. This is the real meaning of life. We take you to discover the garden island, its reliefs bathed in clouds, its lush nature and its sparkling night sky.
Madeira, an autonomous region of Portugal, is an archipelago comprising 4 islands off 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. Capital Funchal has botanic gardens and is known for its harbor and a large New Year’s fireworks show.
