Whilst the Portuguese island of Maderia certainly catches the wind, being an island out in the Atlantic,
its mountainous terrain has made it historically more suitable for watermills than windmills.
However, recent developments have seen the installations of wind farms at a number of locations
on the island.
Traditional windmills are however to be found on its near neighbour,
Porto Santo just 20km away.
Electricity museum Casa Luz:
Within the museum there are a number of exhibits relating to the the wind farms on both Madeira and Porto Santo.
This includes one of the original wind turbines that was installed in the first Porto Santo wind farm.
