Travel Pics Theme: M for Madeira


The theme for our ‪‎travel pics this week is M for Madeira.

 

For Wednesday, it’s the Jaoa Gomes bridge –  a 140m high bridge that connects two tunnels near the Madeira Botanical Gardens (where I took this picture from)

Built in 1974, it’s one of the highest structures in ‘Europe’ (although, as I’ve already said, that’s political description rather than a geographic one)

The island of Madiera is extremely hilly, so there are steep roads and tunnels everywhere … but this bridge just impressed me with its clean lines and confidence.
