 Madeira Island is the largest in a volcanic archipelago in the Atlantic, 230 miles north of the Canaries.   The islands were settled by the Portuguese from 1420, and remain under Portuguese control as an “autonomous region”.   Today Madeira is a popular tourism destination, famous for its wine and gardens, as well as the largest firework display in the world on New Year’s Eve.
