St Sylvester’s 10K, which is considered one of the oldest of its kind in Portugal and Europe, attracts international athletes, bringing lots of adrenaline to downtown Funchal, the island’s capital.

Madeira is an idyllic place and one of the world’s safest holiday and leisure destinations, just a one and a half hour flight away from Lisbon.

It’s Cristiano Ronaldo’s island, where one of the best football players of the world, if not the best, was born.

A calm crystal clear blue sea, breathtaking landscapes, dazzling hotels and bloomy perfumed gardens are the true inspiration and anticipation of great athletics competitions, which gathers locals with hundreds of tourists.

The sun helps warming the soul, providing more comfort to the visitors and allowing them to discover more…

These are the good energies that Madeira Island provides, being the perfect combination for tourism and sport, and one of the most beautiful holiday destinations in Europe.

Share this moment, bring your family!

Madeira Island was awarded the World Travel Award for “World’s Leading Islands Destination 2015”. Discover more here.
