I'm pretty sure we're all looking forward to the Summer. That's why I've decided to take you to an idyllic location in the Atlantic Ocean in this blogpost: the island of Madeira.

Aren't you very familiar with the Portugese island? No worries, I'll provide you with 10 fun facts about Madeira! And we'll talk about a 2 euro commemorative coin as well ;)
 
  1. The autonomous region of Madeira includes the Island of Madeira, Porto Santo, the Ilhas Desertas and the Ilhas Selvagens.
  2. Madeira's capital is Funchal.
  3. Thanks to its many forests and mountains, as well as its unique fauna and flora, Madeira is considered a paradise for nature loving people.
  4. The word 'Madeira' literally means 'wood'. That name comes from the many laurel forests it hosts.
  5. Empress Elisabeth of Austria, better known as Sissi, lived on Madeira for a short while.
  6. Madeira is known for its levadas, an ingenious aqueduct system.
  7. Renowned football player Cristiano Ronaldo was born and raised in Funchal.
  8. The local Madeira wines are said to be among the best dessert wines of the whole of Europe!
  9. Madeira was discovered in 1419 by a couple of lost sailors, which means that this year marks the 600th anniversary of Madeira's discovery
  10. Portugal will commemorate that anniversary with a 2 euro commemorative coin!
