Madeira and its Landmarks

Part Four: Final Shots of Ponta Da Sao Lourenco

Another landform that inspired awe and mystery during our visit were the Deserted Islands or Ilhas Desertas on the south end of the Island of Madeira. There is no fresh water here, no human inhabitants, and probably very little weather on these deserted islands. As far as we know, only Monk Seals, birds and insect life live here year round. There is a research station, but nothing to support day to day modern life. While gazing at these mysterious islands, I wondered if anyone tried to live here at any point in history, and whether they are buried there, or not. Either way, the sight and mention of Ilhas Desertas stirs eerie feelings within.
