Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in the north Atlantic Ocean that lies between 3222.3′N, 1616.5′W and 337.8′N, 1716.65′W. It is one of the Autonomous regions of Portugal, with Madeira Island and Porto Santo Island being the only inhabited islands. Although technically located in the African Plate, some 650 km (360 mi) off the North African coast, Madeira belongs ethnically, culturally and politically to Europe, some 955 km (583 mi) from the European mainland.
