Tour and Colloquium Dinner - April 12, 2017
Leaving Funchal along the coastline, we reach Camara de Lobos (where Sir Winston Churchill spent some time painting during his stay in Madeira) then we reach Cabo Girão, which is the world’s second highest sea cliff, finally reaching Ribeira Brava. Driving up the mountain, through the beautiful green valleys dotted with little white washed houses and dramatic waterfalls dropping from the heart of the mountain, all the way to Encumeada surrounded by a Laurissilva forest. Continuing to Porto Moniz known for its natural swimming pools, originally created when the Volcanic lava first contacted with the Atlantic Ocean’s cold water. Driving along the extravagant western and dramatic coast, our next and last stop will be at São Vicente for lunch at a 360º panoramic restaurant overlooking the ocean. At the end we would like to welcome to a dinner at the stunning Adega da Quinta, a former manor house in Quinta do Estreito. A picturesque restaurant with panoramic windows overlooking the breathtaking view of the Câmara de Lobos bay and picture-perfect garden.
