  1. Amazing pictures and amazing article, thank you! Madeira Island is indeed chock-full of instagrammable places. It’s a clean, beautiful place. So you can focus on anything, as long as you’re allowed to, and with the right light, and the play of shadows, you have something worth instagramming. It’s an incredible city, for sure!
