The Hillclimb is located on the island of Madeira, near the capital Funchal. Madeira was officially discovered and settled in 1419-1420 by Portugese Explorers. There is evidence however that the location of the island was known as far back as the Roman times. It quickly developed as an important stop for explorers and trade routes before traveling further on the atlantic. Today the harbour is still an important stop in transatlantic voyages, but then mostly for large cruiseships.
Madeira and the small islands in its neighbourhood are located some 500km from the African coast. They are part of a large underwater mountain range called the Tore-Madeira Ridge. The archipelago is situated right on top of a volcanic hotspot in the African Tectonic Plate. Madeira originated some 5 million years ago, but some of the smaller islands are much older. The landscape is extremely rugged, 90% of the landmass is above 500m with the highest peak reaching 1862m.
The island has a small but unique biodiversity. Madeira is sometimes labeled as the flower island for the various parks with exotic plants. Its Laurasilva Forests are protected as a World Heritage Site.
