Tourist Information Offices
The Madeira Tourism Board has nine Tourist Information Offices. Two of them are in Funchal, five in other locaties of Madeira and one in Porto Santo island. The Madeira Tourism Board also has one tourist information desk office in Lisbon.
Located in the north of the island of Madeira, the municipality of Porto Moniz has about 3,000 inhabitants distributed over a geographical area of 80.40 km2.
Porto Moniz was finally connected to the rest of the island after World War 2, when the emblematic road connecting Porto Moniz to the municipality of São Vicente was built. This road was literally dug into the hillside, and is occasionally crossed by waterfalls that flow into the sea. This is considered one of the most beautiful roads in wood. For safety reasons, due to falling rocks, today there are tunnels that shorten the distance, but still allow the passage through the most emblematic places along the road.
