General presentationGeneral information
Between Funchal and Calheta, the south-western part of the Madeira profits from a climate much sunnier than the northern coast, and on its slopes open out the banana trees and all kinds of flowers. It is a very populated area; the villages are connected by an extremely sinuous road according to the curves of the relief.

After Calheta, one joined the road old, tortuous, which traverses the west of the island. The west coast is populated and the most withdrawn from the island. The road, broadside of flowered solid masses, crosses a green campaign where, among the wood of bay-trees, arborescent heathers, eucalyptus and pines, some market-gardening field terraces are disseminated.
