Ribeira do Inferno

Previous Index Next

This "valley of hell" on the north coast is so steep, that it is only reachable by tunnels. On the picture one can see the old street (in front) and the new street (in the back) coming out of the rock and then crossing the valley on bridges. The new street then disappears at once in a tunnel. Although Madeira belongs to the poorest regions of the EU, thanks to the money of the EU it has an acceptable road system.
