Farmlands Portugal
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Farmlands

Far from looking like an austere basalt fortress springing from the ocean, Madeira deserves its nickname of the "garden island". Built into terraces sustained by low dry-stone walls, crops grow freely on its hilly landscape. Thanks to the volcanic nature of the island, the soil is very fertile and its lovely climate helps to ensure several harvests per year.
