Ports

Funchal is the capital of the Portugese Madeira Autonomous Region in the Atlantic. Vistit Quinta das Cruzes - an old Madeiran manor house turned museum, lively local market Mercado dos Lavradores and botanical garden Jardins Botânicos da Madeira. If you're looking for a thrill of an adventure you must take a ride in the Toboggan - a wooden sled that guided by the drivers who will push you down steep hills.

Sal is one of the windward islands of the Cape Verde archipelago in the Atlantic. It was named because of the salt activities on the island, dating back to the 1800s.
