Madeira is stepping up to host the World Travel Awards Europe Gala Ceremony.
Ahead of the main event, leading travel industry figureheads from across the continent were welcomed to the Design Centre Nini Andrade Silva for a sumptuous banquet.
Madeira, known as ‘the islands of eternal spring’, enjoys a sub-tropical climate and rich volcanic soil, which together create a unique eco-system bursting with colourful vegetation, waterfalls and lagoons.
The archipelago was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1999 with five areas declared nature reserves.
