Madeira was discovered quite by chance by Zarco in 1419, and named after the forest that once covered the island ("Madeira" meaning "wood" in Portuguese). The island became a regular port of call for trading ships to the New World and later to India.

The rugged peaks we see today are the highest points of a massive sub-marine mountain range raised by volcanic eruptions around 20 million years ago (the Canaries and Azores appeared at the same time).

Consequently, Madeira is blessed with rich volcanic soil which supports a myriad of exotic plants and flowers both native to the island and brought from foreign climes during the Age of Discovery.
