The Madeira region
Commonly Known as the pearl of the atlantic, gives true justice to it's name. Although a modern island, Madeira still lives and breaths the heritage of the past.
Santa Cruz, Madeira
The charming seafront town of Santa Cruz with its traditional Church built during the “Manuelino” period and Town Hall with its primitive 16th Century construction over looks the court house built in a colonial style, is one of the town’s landmarks. Near the sea front, there is the covered fish, meat and vegetable market, supermarket, restaurants, bars, post office, banks and cash machines, medical centre and promenade. A pleasant walk along the promenade leads to the only Water Park of the island. To the North, we have the well known Santo da Serra Golf course and 15 Minutes to the west, we have Camacha, worldwide known for its wickerwork. The genuine folklore singing, dancing and music can also be seen here. Further inland, one can explore the Levadas or irrigation channels which cover the whole island. Funchal, the cosmopolitan capital of Madeira, is only 15 minutes from Santa Cruz.
