A Country Named Portugal - Os Herois do Mar - Islands Azores and Madeira



Motto: "Antes morrer livres que em paz sujeitos"
(Portuguese for "Rather die free than in peace subjugated")

Motto: "Das ilhas, as mais belas e livres" (Portuguese)
"Of all islands, the most beautiful and free"

Described as a floating garden, Madeira is a lush green
volcanic island surrounded by very deep Atlantic seas.
Fecund laurisilva forest prevails on Madeira, a World Heritage
Site, but everywhere flowers, shrubs and trees from all over
the world flourish in the mild tropical climate. The island is
amazingly convoluted; roads climb into the mountainous
heartlands at crazy angles, or twist around the tortuous but
very beautiful coastline in breathtaking fashion.
