Photographer's Note

We left Funchal to trek at 25 Fountains levada, but we couldn't make it, bacause of the fog. From the central plateu of the island, we then make the descent to Ribeira da Janela and from there to Porto Moniz for an unplanned lunch :)

I was surprised by this structure and only realized its function when I saw the big H. Madeira's Tourism board says that «Porto Moniz harbour is protected by a 120-metre breakwater and also has a heliport, which can be used not only for tourist purposes but also for emergencies requiring immediate air transport». So it be :)
