Looking forward to our trip in a few weeks time. I love the helpful hints to find the non-touristy attractions that the island offers. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing posts about Madeira! Glad you found this useful, Justyna. Enjoy your time in Madeira. That sugar cane factory sounds interesting. And, I did not know you could eat limpets!!? How bizarre! Were they like Mussells? I found them better than mussels, Alex.
