The archipelago of Madeira consists of the islands of Madeira, Porto Santo and a group of uninhabited islands, called Desertas and the Selvagens. The population of the island is 260,000, including 90,000 inhabitants in the city of Funchal (main port). The island has long been known for its wine, embroidery and wickerwork.

Madeira enjoys one of the most equable climates in the world. It is warm all year round with warm summers, mild winters and moderate rainfall. Summer temperatures rarely exceed 27° C (86° F) and winter temperatures never fall below 10° C (52 °F).
