Beautiful photos, I didn't expect Madeira to have such a varied landscape in such a small island. It kind of reminds me of the Canary Islands with much more forests.
I was very impressed with the photos showing the view of Funchal from the sea, it kind of impacts me seeing so many homes and apartment buildings dot the mountains. I was also much delighted by the street level photos showing an impeccably maintained urban center with a charming almost colonial style atmosphere. Lastly, it was a nice surprise to see modern residential architecture well adapted to the surroundings (the beach side condos)

EXCELLENT JOB!

great pics.....the place is absolutely stunning despite the absence of powdery sandy beaches.
I saw some banana trees on the second pic...is this island situated on a tropical zone?

Beautiful, a real contrast between the northern looking forest and the tropical looking beach!
