The landscape of Sao Lourenco - Madeira photos
If the east of Madeira, near Machico and Canical, there is the exceptional landscape of Sao Lourence.
Photos of the dry, moon-alike landscape should be included in every photo gallery of Madeira.
Nothing groes on this promontory, except a rare cactus and dry grass.
The airport and Santa cruz are only a few miles away from here.
The landscape of Sao Lourenco illustrates how dry the south of Madeira, including Funchal, would be without the inventive irrigation system of levadas that brings the water from the North towards the rest of the island.
