Machico town Madeira was the very first point of the island which was discovered back in 1419. It houses the oldest church on Madeira island as well as an imported beach. If you’re wondering what Machico is like, we spent a few hours wandering its streets and here are the results. Madeira is a great place for families with kids and there are lots of things, for such a small island, to keep you busy with.
The Machico Beach & Town
The beach is at the southern tip of the town. On one side it is surrounded by mountains and imported sand and on the other a pebble beach.
The Aqueduct & Bridge
The aqueduct at the northern part of the town dates back to the 15th century.
The River That Divides The Town
Dividing the town into two is the huge river bed. The river is not very fast flowing at the moment and there’s many trees. shrubs and flowers growing inside it. There are some interesting, red-faced ducks, in there to look at too.
