dent of the The archipelago of Madeira took on a role of reference Message from the ProfesiM in the Portuguese Maritime Expansion of the 15th and adeira ent Regional Governm 16th centuries. Its geostrategic position determined the discovery of new worlds to begin on these islands, developing into a globalization movement that left its unquestionable mark on the local, national and global socio-economic paradigm. The industries of sugar, wine, embroideries and even tourism have their genesis in this auspicious period of a History that is alive still today, exactly because we are a people that do not forget their roots. A people who, on the contrary, build from their roots their own opening to the outside world, stating their difference and their capacity to integrate, learn from and to fraternize with different people.

Estatuto Editorial A Revista Madeira Island Magazine é uma revista bimestral bilingue (Português e Inglês), gratuita, em formato impresso. A revista Madeira Island iniciou a sua publicação em Maio de 1978 com o intuito de dar a conhecer a Madeira a todos os seus visitantes, e trata, especialmente, temas relacionados à Cultura, Turismo, História, lazer, eventos, gastronomia e personalidades da Madeira, mantendo a possibilidade de abordar outras temáticas que sejam relevantes para os nossos visitantes bem como todos os Madeirenses. A Madeira Island Magazine é uma revista independente.

Com Produção musical e artística de Maria da Paz Rodrigues, este CD reúne as vozes de Vânia Fernandes, Diana Duarte e Elisa Silva, três jovens e talentosas cantoras madeirenses e conta com Chico Martins (piano), Vitor Sardinha (guitarra), Luis Nunes (baixo) e Aloísio Athouguia (bateria), músicos que ainda recordam o som e o ambiente desses anos de ouro das ‘Noites da Madeira’. Acresce sublinhar a excelente gravação do estúdio Paulo Ferraz.

«Esta é, acima de tudo, uma homenagem afetiva da Região a Max, que simultaneamente valoriza um importante legado, associando a obra que se homenageia e os ambientes que se recordam das tão afamadas “Noites da Madeira” à interpretação e performance dos nossos talentos contemporâneos», afirmou a Secretária Regional do Turismo e Cultura, Paula Cabaço.

600 anos da descoberta do Arquipélago da Madeira Mensagem do Presidente do Governo

Regional da Madeira

O Arquipélago da Madeira assumiu um papel de referência na expansão marítima portuguesa, nos séculos XV e XVI. A sua posição geoestratégica fez com que a conquista de novos mundos se iniciasse nestas ilhas, rumo a uma globalização que marcou, inequivocamente, o paradigma socioeconómico local, do país e do mundo. As indústrias do açúcar, do vinho, do bordado e até a atividade turística, na sua génese, remontam a este período áureo de uma história que ainda hoje se mantém viva, precisamente porque somos uma terra que não esquece as suas origens. Que, pelo contrário, parte delas para afirmar a sua abertura ao exterior. Para fazer valer a sua diferença e a sua capacidade de integração, aprendizagem e fraternidade, entre os diferentes povos. Celebrar os 600 anos do Descobrimento das nossas ilhas é comemorar uma história que diariamente se reescreve, na base de um passado que ajuda a projetar o futuro. Nesta celebração conjunta, cada madeirense e porto-santense é chamado a dar o seu contributo e a realizar, neste pequeno mas único território, a portugalidade que sempre nos fez e faz maiores.

On the 23rd day of Christmas my true love gave to me a Market Festivity | Funchal

On the 1st day of the New Year my true love gave to me the very first plunge of 2019

Shopping for the final Christmas gifts on the night of the 23rd of December is a tradition that leads thousands of Madeireans to the Market streets in Funchal. In this contagious buzz, which also appeals to many visitors, it is noticeable the true spirit of the “festivity”. The surrounding streets of the Market are closed to traffic and become a gigantic window of local products display: fruits, vegetables, flowers, sweets and typical Christmas drinks. The bars located nearby are open all night, joining forces to turn this into one of the longest and cheerful nights in Madeira.

The event of the year will take place on the 1st of January at noon, at Ponta Gorda Bathing Complex, also known as “Poças do Governador”. The first plunge of the year is a tradition rooted in some cities of the country and the World, but it will take place for the first time in Madeira. The initiative aims to create an event that brings together locals and tourists who wish to be part of the ritual, with the condition of bringing a Christmas hat.

É no dia 23 que, tradicionalmente, os madeirenses fazem as compras das iguarias para o Natal, num ritual que leva milhares de Madeirenses até às ruas do Mercado dos Lavradores, no Funchal. É o dia ideal para visitar o mercado e conhecer e comprar todo o tipo de produtos regionais: frutas, legumes, flores, doces e bebidas típicas de Natal. Os bares circundantes aproveitam a ocasião para se manterem abertos toda a noite, colaborando para que esta seja uma das noites mais longas e animadas da Madeira.

On this day the municipality of Santa Cruz pays tribute to its patron saint in a very lively religious festivity, which marks the end of the Christmas holidays. Esta festividade marca o dia em que as famílias desmancham os presépios, as lapinhas e “varrem os armários” – uma tradição que consiste em visitar familiares e amigos que se juntam para partilhar as últimas iguarias das festas.

MIM December-January 2019

Christmas & New Year Christmas has often been referred to as "the most wonderful time of the year", but when visiting Madeira in December one can easily see why it is incomparable to Christmas elswhere in the world.

Here are 6 reasons why Christmas and New Year in Madeira is so unique:

1 Swim n’ Sun

4 Sandman

Sunshine and semi-tropical weather lets the residents of Funchal slip on shorts and bikinis for their post-Christmas morning swim.

Besides Madeira, Porto Santo is the only other inhabited island of the Madeira Archipelago. A golden isle, washed by turquoise sea and where peace and quiet reign supreme, the Island of Porto Santo is all you need for a truly relaxing Christmas holiday. This paradise island boasts 9 km of fine golden sand ideal for sunbathing and, believe it or not, for making the famous ‘sandman’, rather than snowman, during the Christmas season. Health and wellness go hand in hand on this magnificent beach. Its soft, fine and smooth sand consists mainly of calcium carbonate in the form of calcite, which has special thermal qualities. In a nutshell, Madeira's version of a snowman is nothing more, nothing less than a healthy sandman.

2 Slender Santas Street vendors, whose slender bodies could easily be compared to model s on the catwalk, dress up as Santa and roam the streets of Funchal selling multi-coloured foil helium balloons.

3 Bailinho Christmas in Madeira is undeniably a little less Bing Crosby and a little more ‘Bailinho’ - Madeira’s renowned folklore group. The dancers wear the traditional costume and are followed by musicians playing traditional local instruments including the rather unusual instrument called the ‘brinquinho’.

5 Unique Delicacies

When you've got pork meat with marinated fried bread on your plate you know it’s Christmas time in Madeira! And if that’s not enough, there’s more: honey cake, coconut biscuits and liqueurs.

6 Massive Fireworks Dislay Madeira takes pride in its Guiness World Record (GWR) Certificate for the largest foreworks show in the world. It was achieved on the 31st December 2006/07. The tons of fireworks used were spread across 37 stations throughout the region where GWR inspectors visited these locations to analyze its true magnitude. A decision was announced on January 1st 2007 at 1:30 am granting Madeira Island the official winning title. Year after year Madeira still remains the best place in the world for the New Year’s Fireworks display.

6 Razões pelas quais o Natal e o Ano Novo são uma ocasião única na Madeira O Natal tem sido muitas vezes referido como "a época mais maravilhosa do ano", mas quando se visita a Madeira em Dezembro, pode-se ver facilmente porque é incomparável ao Natal em todo o mundo. Mergulho O sol e o clima semitropical permitem que os Madeirenses usem calções e biquínis para o seu mergulho matinal pós-natal. Pai Natal Os vendedores de rua vestem-se de Pai Natal e percorrem as ruas do Funchal vendendo balões multicoloridos de hélio. Bailinho O Natal na Madeira é inegavelmente conhecido pelo "Bailinho" que sai à rua. Os grupos folclóricos vestem trajes tradicionais e os músicos tocam instrumentos tradicionais locais, incluindo o famoso 'brinquinho'. Praia A ilha dourada, banhada pelo mar turquesa e onde a paz e a tranquilidade reinam, é tudo o que precisa para umas férias de Natal verdadeiramente relaxantes. Esta ilha paradisíaca possui 9 km de areias finas e douradas, ideais para banhos de sol. Saúde e bem-estar andam de mãos dadas nesta magnífica praia. Delícias Únicas Ao experimentar uma sandes de carne de vinho-e-alhos, sabe que é Natal na Madeira! E se isso não for suficiente, há mais: bolo de mel, broas e licores. Fogo-de-artifício A Madeira orgulha-se da sua festa de fim de ano. As toneladas de fogos-de-artifício usados são espalhadas por vários postos de lançamento e proporcionam um grandioso espetáculo que é um dos mais importantes cartazes turísticos da Madeira.

[ Duas estrelas ('uma cozinha excecional, que merece o desvio'), uma estrela ('cozinha de grande requinte, compensa parar')]

The Michelin stars for Portugal 2019 have been handed out at a ceremony in Lisboa (the first time ever that the Michelin Guide to Spain & Portugal has been presented from Portugal), and the big news is that Madeira keeps the one star restaurant William and the two star Il Gallo d’Oro. Executive chef Luís Pestana is at the helm of William, this fine dining restaurant at the iconic and exclusive Reid’s Belmond Palace. Modern European cuisine prepared with innovative flavors and contemporary techniques is provides a “wow factor”. Cannelloni of foie gras with Madeira wine, chocolate and coffee financier, and pear chutney, rivals the lobster with cauliflower textures, beetroot and caviar. French born Benoît Sinthon credits his Italian grandmother for awakening his passion for cooking. Sinthon settled at the Cliff Bay a few years ago and quickly reorganized the kitchen of Il Gallo d’Oro. His efforts paid off with two Michelin stars. Distinguished dishes include: Foie Gras Triolgy with bicolor pear compote and 10 year Blandy’s Madeira Wine verdelho jelly; Langoustine XL, with couscous of cauliflower and mango, granny smith apple and wasabi; and Premium Wagyu Filet, accompanied by veal cheek confit, black truffle juice.

O Guia Michelin de 2019 atribuiu mais quatro estrelas a Portugal, que passou de 23 restaurantes e 28 estrelas — números do ano passado — para 26 restaurantes e 32 estrelas. A Madeira está em destaque com a manutenção das 2 estrelas à cozinha do “Il Galo D’Oro” (situado no hotel The Cliff Bay e liderado pelo chef Benoît Sinthon) que se notabiliza pelas “incríveis notas autorais baseadas nas cozinhas clássica e internacional” refere o guia e de uma estrela do “William” (localizado no hotel Belmond Reid’s Palace e chefiado por Luís Pestana) que prima pela sua elegância.

MIM December-January 2019

A Special Madeiran Christmas Feast Nativity Scenes and “Lapinhas” In Madeira, the nativitity cribs, or nativity scenes, are built in two ways: in the form of a staircase or in a rock-shaped form. In general, both are referred to as “lapinha” by the locals. Lapinha The “Lapinha” in Staircase, or simply “Lapinha”, consists of a small altar of three hauls (the staircase) that is placed on a table or chest of drawers covered with a red and burgundy tablecloth and, on top of it, another lacy white tablecloth. On the top is placed the image of the Baby Jesus, and on the other steps the shepherds and other figures of the crib, fruits such as oranges, pears, nuts and wheat seeds. Rochinha The rock-shaped “Lapinha” is done imitating mountains, valleys and a grotto. The little rock recreates the landscape of the island. Once the rock is made, paths are built, lakes, streams, waterfalls and “levadas”. Then figures are placed: there are houses and churches, fruits, sheep and sheperds. Finally, the Baby Jesus is placed in the nativity crib, together with Mary, Joseph and the three wise men.

Christmas Tree The Traditional Christmas Tree in was traditionally bought at the farmers’ market, to retain the natural smell inside the house. Nowadays, most people already buy their artificial christmas tree. The decoration of the Christmas tree is usually made with balls, christmas lights, snowflakes, bows, wreaths, etc. At the top of the christmas tree stands the star. It is very traditional the Christmas tree to be accompanied by the rock-shaped Lapinha.

The Madeiran Christmas has always been rather special for locals and visitors alike. The “Feast Day” is related in every sense of the word to the island traditions. At this time of the year, Madeirans often use the expressions “for the feast”, “the pork for the feast”, “the feast month”, “after the feast”, taking as reference the date adopted for the celebration of the birth of Jesus. It’s a season full of traditions, which have perpetuated themselves in time.

Childbirth Masses The Christmas celebrations in Madeira Island began with the “Novenas”, which are called Childbirth Masses. The first mass occurs on December 16th and the last one on December 24th. All the Masses are celebrated at dawn, usually between 5 and 7 a.m. in the morning. It is an old and documented custom, at least since the eighteenth century.

It is the ideal day to visit the market and get to know and buy all kinds of regional products: fruits, vegetables, flowers, sweets and typical Christmas drinks. In the last twenty years, this night has become one of the trademark images of Madeiran Christmas.

Mother Nature's Secrets Man has always been deeply fascinated by minerals and they have continued to rouse our interest as we have discovered the treasures hidden in the depths of the earth. The attraction that people feel for minerals is so strong that they have constantly searched for their polished forms since time immemorial. Over the ages they have been used as personal adornments in rings, necklaces, monarchs’ crowns, and other decorations. Moved by this fascination and a huge passion for collecting, José Berardo has spent 15 years amassing a magnificent assortment of minerals. Determined to share yet another passion with the public, he has set up this exhibition, which consists of about 1000 mineral specimens, mostly from Brazil, Portugal, South Africa, Zambia, Peru, Argentina and North America. This exhibition boasts a vast mineral collection that excels in its association of colours, lustre and geometrical forms in a wide variety of sizes, giving the items an extraordinary beauty. There are also some excellent specimens of petrified wood.

Minerais Os minerais desde sempre exerceram um enorme fascínio sobre o homem e despertaram o seu interesse pelo conhecimento dos tesouros escondidos nas profundezas da Terra. A atracção que estes minerais exercem sobre o homem é tão grande, que desde a antiguidade a sua procura sob formas polidas tem sido incessante. Desde então, o seu uso tem-se manifestado em objectos de adorno pessoal, como sendo, jóias, coroas de monarcas e objectos decorativos. Movido por este fascínio e uma enorme paixão por coleccionismo, o Comendador José Berardo, vem construindo uma magnífica colecção de minerais ao longo de 15 anos. Determinado a partilhar mais uma paixão com o público, montou a presente exposição da qual constam cerca de 1000 exemplares, provenientes na sua maioria do Brasil, Portugal, África do Sul, Zâmbia, Peru, Argentina e América do Norte. Neste espaço poderá observar um vasto conjunto de minerais que primam pela associação de diversas cores, bri-lho e formas geométricas, aliadas á variada dimensão das mesmas que lhes conferem uma beleza extraordinária e também alguns belíssimos exemplares de Madeira Petrificada.

A minute before midnight, the countdown begins, followed by a spectacular fireworks show. Families and friends gather on the balconies of their houses, in hotels, on city squares or on belvederes, to celebrate this festive night with food, drinks and lots of fun. Good resolutions for the new year are made. Tradition says that you should make 12 wishes at midnight (one for each grape eaten), you should climb one step and you should keep some money in your pocket, so that the new year brings you good luck and prosperity. The fireworks show displays a magnificent, synchronised spectacle of colour, shapes and light, which lasts around eight minutes. The cruise ships whistle, the church bells ring…New Years greetings and good wishes fill the air. For many people, the party has just begun and the New Year’s celebrations continue until breakfast on January 1st.

instruments, such as viola de arame, machete or braguinha, rajão (types of guitar), rabeca (from the violin family) and ferrinhos (triangle). Another rather unusual instrument is the brinquinho. It consists of seven wooden dolls dressed as dancers with castanets hanging on their backs, placed on a stick. The player moves the brinquinho up and down, thus mimicking the bailinho. There are various types of bailinho: Bailinho das Camacheiras (featuring a lively tempo), Bailinho de Oito (involving four dance couples) and Bailinho Pesado (“Heavy Ball”, a slower style) are probably the most popular ones. Aside from bailinho, other folklore dances exist, such as Chamarrita, Charamba and Mourisca, among others. As you can see, there is a lot of variety when it comes to Madeira dance styles. And each of them is extremely fun to watch (or to dance if you dare to try!). A great opportunity to do that is during the 31st Regional Folklore Festival – 48 Hours of Dancing, which will take place this July in the municipality of Santana. 20 folk groups will show their dancing skills for three days, both in individual performances and collective parades.

Madeira Folk Music and Dance Dancing is a crucial element of the Madeira culture, and there are several traditional dance styles on the island. They all have multinational origins, since a lot of people of different ethnicities travelled to Madeira through its history, due to it being a major port in trade routes of the Atlantic. The black and Moorish slaves from Guinea, Morocco and Mauritania, had a great influence on local culture, bringing some African dance elements, such as jumps and turns, and Arabic melodies. British, Flemish, French and Italian merchants popularized the European dances, like waltzes, contra dances, polkas and quadrilles that had an impact on the Madeira’s “dancing scene” as well. And, of course, it has also roots in Continental Portuguese dances, especially from the Minho and Algarve regions. Despite all the international influences, Madeira people managed to develop their own unique styles that you can’t find anywhere else in the world. The best-known style is the Bailinho da Madeira. It appeared about a century ago, the same time the first folk groups were created. The dancers usually wear the traditional costume, traje da Madeira, and are followed by musicians playing traditional local

Description From swans a-swimming and geese a-laying to that partridge in a pear tree, the various feathered gifts from the popular Christmas song deserve a closer look, specially the protagonist of the song – the partridge. The "partridge in a pear tree" is obviously the red-legged partridge, a rotund seed-eater native to continental Europe. It was introduced to England as a game bird in the 1770s, and it's still common in the U.K. today. Shape & Size Medium-sized bulky game bird with straight stiff wings. Colour Pattern Pale brown upperparts with black, brown and blue-grey barred flanks. It has a striped foreneck with a black line around its whitish chin. Its bill and legs are red. Behavior It is typically seen in family groups though it is a quite elusive species. Although its bright colours it easily camouflages on dry or light soils. Habitat This partridge species prefers dry and open areas but also grassy cliffs. Distinction from similar species Red-legged partridge differs from Rock Partridge and Chukar by its extensive black striped neck and spotted upper breast and sides of neck.

Comportamento Espécie gregária, podendo também ser avistada em grandes bandos, especialmente no fim do Inverno, bandos esses que são desfeitos no início do período reprodutivo. Voa rente ao solo, depois de uma pequena corrida para tomar balanço. Habitat Esta ave prefere áreas mais abertas com vegetação arbustiva baixa para escondorijo e áreas com erva rasteira ou sem mato para se alimentar. Contudo, adapta-se a

uma grande variedade de solos e a diferentes habitats tais como agrícolas ou pastagens (Snow & Perrins, 1998). Dieta Alimenta-se preferencialmente de sementes e rebentos de plantas bravias e agrícolas, consumindo também insectos, moluscos e outros invertebrados. Efetivo Populacional O seu efectivo populacional natural não é conhecido, uma vez que anualmente são feitas introduções de aves criadas em cativeiro. Factores de Ameaça Tal como na Europa, no Arquipélago da Madeira esta ave também é ameaçada pela mudança das práticas agrícolas, fundamentalmente com o abandono do cultivo do trigo e de outros cereais. Contudo, a principal ameaça passa por uma sobrexploração devido a pressão exercida pela caça. Medidas de Conservação É uma espécie gerida sob o ponto de vista cinegético sendo alvo de reintroduções anuais. Nas ilhas da Madeira e Porto Santo menos de 50% da sua área de ocorrência estão classificadas como Zona de Protecção Especial e Zonas Especiais de Conservação, integrando desta forma a Rede Natura 2000. Igualmente outras áreas de ocorrência estão protegidas sob o a juridisção do Serviço do Parque Natural da Madeira com o estatuto de Reserva Integral ou Parcial.

Madeira’s Bird of Paradise (Strelitzia Reginae) Strelitzia Reginae Aiton is one the most popular horticultural perennial around the world and commonly found in Madeira. Strelitzia is a genus of five species of perennial plants, native to South Africa. Strelitzia is named in honour of Queen Charlotte, wife of George III, from the house of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. The specific name reginae is Latin and means ‘of the queen'. A common name of the genus is Bird of Paradise flower, because of a supposed resemblance of its flowers to the bird of paradise.

Estrelícia Conhecidas como "ave do paraíso", as estrelícias são provenientes do Cabo da Boa Esperança (África do Sul) e foram introduzidas na Europa há cerca de 200 anos. Elegantes e perfumadas, são consideradas como um dos símbolos da Madeira. É uma planta perene, rizomatosa, com raízes carnudas e compridas, e folhas duras e coriáceas que saem diretamente do solo. A inflorescência é composta por sete ou mais flores, cujas sépalas podem ser amarelas ou laranjas e as brácteas azuis, e as flores verdadeiras são pequenas e de cor branca. A estrelícia é uma planta tropical e, por isso, as temperaturas ótimas de crescimento situam-se na ordem dos 25-27ºC durante o dia e 17-18ºC durante a noite. Na Madeira, ela encontra-se até aos 300-500m de altitude na costa sul e até aos 250m na costa norte. As aves do paraíso tem uma grande variedade de cores, incluindo laranja, branco, vermelho, amarelo e rosa. A espécie Strelitzia reginae é a que apresenta maior interesse comercial, embora também se cultive a S. juncifolia, de folhas mais delgadas e flores mais pequenas, e a S. nicolai, espécie de maior porte que pode chegar aos 6m, com flores brancas e brácteas azul-púrpura. Estas duas últimas espécies são mais utilizadas em jardim ou como plantas de interior. Curiosidade - Sabia que o nome científico desta planta é uma homenagem à rainha Sofia Carlota de Mecklenburg-Strelitz, esposa do Rei Jorge III do Reino Unido?

Albert Schweitzer Albert Schweitzer was a French-German thinker, theologian, musician, and medical doctor, who became famous for his humanitarian activities in West Africa. “Reverence for life” is probably Schweitzer's best-known philosophical concept. Although he wrote on a variety of topics, ethics was at the center of his thought. He was unsatisfied with existing systems of ethics, and felt that a new ethical system was needed to guide our lives and prevent the decay of our civilization. For years he searched for a new basis for ethics, until he came up with the concept of “reverence for life,” which he developed in his writings and followed in his humanitarian activities.

Info Name: Albert Schweitzer Born: 14 January 1875 Kaysersberg, Alsace-Lorraine, Germany (now Haut-Rhin, France) Died: 4 September 1965 (aged 90), Lambaréné, Gabon Known for: Musicology, philanthropy, theology Awards : • Goethe Prize (1928) • Nobel Peace Prize (1952) Scientific career Fields: Medicine, music, philosophy, theology

In the last decades of the eighteenth century, old arguments about what constituted true Christianity resumed with the newly refined tools and methods of linguistics, history, and comparative literature. The most sensitive questions sought to probe through the centuries and discover the original Jesus. Why, scholars asked, is the New Testament silent about most of Jesus's life? Why didn't Paul say more about the life of Jesus?

Albert Schweitzer (January 14, 1875-September 4, 1965) was born into an Alsatian family which for generations had been devoted to religion, music, and education. His father and maternal grandfather were ministers; both of his grandfathers were talented organists; many of his relatives were persons of scholarly attainments. Schweitzer entered into his intensive theological studies in 1893 at the University of Strasbourg where he obtained a doctorate in philosophy in 1899, with a dissertation on the religious philosophy of Kant, and received his licentiate in theology in 1900. He began preaching at St. Nicholas Church in Strasbourg in 1899; he served in various high ranking administrative posts from 1901 to 1912 in the Theological College of St.Thomas, the college he had attended at the University of Strasbourg. In 1906 he published The Quest of the Historical Jesus, a book on which much of his fame as a theological scholar rests. Meanwhile he continued with a distinguished musical career initiated at an early age with piano and organ lessons. Only nine when he first performed in his father’s church, he was, from his young manhood to his middle eighties, recognized as a concert organist, internationally known. From his professional engagements he earned funds for his education, particularly his later medical schooling, and for his African hospital. Musicologist as well as performer, Schweitzer wrote a biography of Bach in 1905 in French, published a book on organ building and playing in 1906, and rewrote the Bach book in German in 1908. Having decided to go to Africa as a medical missionary rather than as a pastor, Schweitzer in 1905 began the study of medicine at the

University of Strasbourg. In 1913, having obtained his M.D. degree, he founded his hospital at Lambaréné in French Equatorial Africa, but in 1917 he and his wife were sent to a French internment camp as prisoners of war. Released in 1918, Schweitzer spent the next six years in Europe, preaching in his old church, giving lectures and concerts, taking medical courses, writing On the Edge of the Primeval Forest, The Decay and Restoration of Civilization, Civilization and Ethics, and Christianity and the Religions of the World. Schweitzer returned to Lambaréné in 1924 and except for relatively short periods of time, spent the remainder of his life there. With the funds earned from his own royalties and personal appearance fees and with those donated from all parts of the world, he expanded the hospital to seventy buildings which by the early 1960’s could take care of over 500 patients in residence at any one time. At Lambaréné, Schweitzer was doctor and surgeon in the hospital, pastor of a congregation, administrator of a village, superintendent of buildings and grounds, writer of scholarly books, commentator on contemporary history, musician, host to countless visitors. The honors he received were numerous, including the Goethe Prize of Frankfurt and honorary doctorates from many universities emphasizing one or another of his achievements. The Nobel Peace Prize for 1952, having been withheld in that year, was given to him on December 10, 1953. With the $33,000 prize money, he started the leprosarium at Lambaréné. Albert Schweitzer died on September 4, 1965, and was buried at Lambaréné.

Albert Schweitzer Albert Schweitzer OM (Kaysersberg, 14 de janeiro de 1875 — Lambaréné, 4 de setembro de 1965) foi um teólogo, organista, filósofo e médico alemão, nascido na Alsácia, então parte do Império Alemão. Descendente de uma linhagem de importantes políticos locais, Albert Schweitzer foi filho de Louis Schweitzer, cujo pai era Philippe-Chrétien Schweitzer, prefeito de Pfaffenhofen, na Alsácia. Louis era irmão de Charles Schweitzer, pai de Anne-Marie Schweitzer, mãe do filósofo francês Jean-Paul Sartre.

Biografia Albert Schweitzer nasceu em Kaysersberg, França, na época, parte do Império Alemão, no dia 14 de janeiro de 1875. Filho de um pastor protestante se dedicou aos estudos teológicos. Passou sua infância em Gunsbach, onde iniciou seus estudos. Mudou-se para Mulhouse onde estudou órgão, sob a direção de Eugene Munch. Mais tarde, estudou Teologia e Filosofia na Sorbonne, em Paris e órgão no Conservatório de Música. Em 1899 doutorou-se em Filosofia e em 1900 licenciou-se em Teologia. Em seguida foi nomeado mestre de conferências na Faculdade de Teologia de Estrasburgo. Ao mesmo tempo se destacou como conhecedor e interprete de Bach. Em 1905, interrompeu sua brilhante carreira e ingressou no curso de Medicina. Em 1913, depois de formado, mudou-se para Lambaréné, na colônia francesa de Gabão, na África, com o propósito de fundar um hospital para a população carente. Durante a Primeira Guerra, por ser alemão, foi levado para a França, como prisioneiro de guerra. Nessa época preparou concertos com músicas de Bach, que foram realizados depois de terminar o conflito. Com o lucro obtido, reabriu o hospital de Lambaréné se tornando um reconhecido filantropo. Recebeu o Prêmio Goethe, em 1928, a Legião de Honra, em 1948 e o Prêmio Nobel em 1945. Faleceu em Lambaréné, no dia 4 de setembro de 1965.

Citações de Albert Schweitzer • O mundo tornou-se perigoso, porque os homens aprenderam a dominar a natureza antes de se dominarem a si mesmos.

• A nossa civilização está condenada porque se desenvolveu com mais vigor materialmente do que espiritualmente. O seu equilíbrio foi destruído.

• Só são verdadeiramente felizes aqueles que procuram ser úteis aos outros. • Não há heróis da ação; só heróis da renúncia e do sofrimento. • Para nós os grandes homens não são aqueles que resolveram os problemas, mas aqueles que os descobriram.

• A quem me pergunta se sou pessimista ou otimista, respondo que o meu conhecimento é de pessimista, mas a minha vontade e a minha esperança são de otimista. • Os anos enrugam a pele, mas renunciar ao entusiasmo faz enrugar a alma. • Não devemos contentar-nos em falar do amor para com o próximo, mas praticálo.

Forbes magazine has recently released a list entitled 'The top 19

best places to Visit in 2019 ' in which Madeira and Porto Santo were included on the listing.

What’s on your travel wish list for 2019?

Where: Madeira Chosen By: Based in Mexico City, María Pellicer has been working in the travel industry for the past decade.

Why: Portugal has been on travelers' radars for quite some time now, but I'm super excited about the country getting a bit more popular. Madeira is a great nature destination and is still fairly unexplored. Because of its remote location, there's a feeling of something exotic and isolated — but then again, it's Portugal, so food and culture are still there. For those who love nature, this is something to keep an eye on.

A revista Forbes criou uma lista dos ‘19 melhores locais para conhecer em 2019’ baseada nas opniões de alguns dos maiores especialistas em viagens do Mundo. A ilha da Madeira figura entre os lugares escolhidos, numa lista que também contempla dos Açores. De acordo com a Forbes, a “Madeira é um grande destino de Natureza e continua pouco explora-

da”. “Devido à sua localização remota, há um sentimento de algo exótico e isolado – mas como se trata de Portugal, a gastronomia e a cultura continuam presentes”, explica a especialista María Pellicer que trabalha há mais de dez anos na área do Turismo. A revista refere que para aqueles que amam a natureza, este é um destino que importa seguir.

Num outro artigo da mesma revista a Madeira é referida como o destino para umas férias e fogo-deartifício soberbos. São referidas as festividades de Natal e Fim do Ano como únicas e que oferecem o melhor espectáculo de fogo-deartifício do Mundo. E porque não visitar o Porto Santo? Essa é outra das propostas sugeridas.

For those with rheumatic, iatric and orthopaedic problems, the island of Porto Santo’s therapeutic qualities make it the ideal destination for a different kind of peaceful holiday. Here, the sands and ocean waters are the main ingredients in the treatments and therapies offered at spas and specialized centres. Let yourself be pampered in one of the many natural treatments of the Porto Santo thalassotherapy center, which means “sea therapy” in Greek. The sea water of Porto Santo is used in treatments, due to the high amounts of strontium, chromium and iodine, elements beneficial to health. Similarly, the spring water of this island is also rich in essential components for the well-being of the human body. The beach of Porto Santo also stands out, for its sand with carbonated properties, composed of sediments of corals, shells and sea urchins. Scientifically recognized for its therapeutic properties, that help in the treatment of rheumatic and bone diseases, this sand is one of the elements that integrates the treatments developed by the Center of Geomedicine of Porto Santo. Come to visit, and relax while you treat yourself. Para aqueles com problemas do foro reumático, fisiátrico e ortopédico, a ilha do Porto Santo por todas as suas caraterísticas e qualidades terapêuticas, é o destino ideal para umas férias diferentes e tranquilas. Aqui, as areias e as águas do mar são os ingredientes principais dos tratamentos e terapias disponibilizados nos spas e centros especializados. Deixe-se mimar num dos muitos tratamentos naturais do centro de talassoterapia do Porto Santo, que significa “terapia do mar” em grego. A praia do Porto Santo destaca-se pela sua areia com propriedades carbonatadas, composta por sedimentos de corais, conchas e ouriços-do-mar. Reconhecida cientificamente pelas suas propriedades terapêuticas que auxiliam no tratamento de enfermidades reumáticas e ósseas, esta areia é um dos elementos que integra os tratamentos desenvolvidos pelo Centro de Geomedicina do Porto Santo. A água do mar do Porto Santo é usada também em tratamentos de talassoterapia, devido às quantidades elevadas de estrôncio, crómio e iodo, elementos benéficos para a saúde. Da mesma forma, a água de nascente desta ilha, é também rica em componentes essenciais para o bem-estar do corpo humano.

Orienteering Orienteering is a sport that combines both a physical and a mental element. The basic idea in orienteering is to proceed from course start to finish by visiting a number of control points in a predetermined order with the help of map and compass. In order to choose the best possible route, orienteers look at the characteristics of the terrain, and the winner is determined by the fastest time to complete the course. What is unique to orienteering is that an orienteer must navigate and make quick decisions while running at high speed. Orienteering in Madeira For those who want to develop and refine their sense of direction, we invite you to do so on the Madeira Islands. Large forest areas and mild temperatures make this archipelago the ideal scenery for the practice of Orienteering. Here you will find a number of associations that promote and organize events throughout the year.

O que é a Orientação? A Orientação é uma das modalidades desportivas que mais tem crescido nos últimos anos em Portugal! A competição concilia-se com o lazer, num espaço que proporciona um permanente contacto com a Natureza. Cada pessoa escolhe o seu ritmo em função dos desafios que determinou, encontrando-se consigo mesma e, simultaneamente, permitindo conhecer novas pessoas, fazer novos amigos. Como praticar? Na partida, cada praticante recebe um mapa onde estão marcados pequenos círculos que correspondem a pontos de controlo, materializados no terreno pelas "balizas" (prismas de cores laranja e branca), que estão acompanhadas de uma estação eletrónica (e/ou um pequeno picotador). Introduzindo o seu identificador (ou picotando o seu cartão de controlo) o praticante comprova a passagem por cada ponto. A escolha do itinerário entre cada ponto de controlo é uma opção do próprio praticante! Cada ponto é uma meta e, simultaneamente, a partida para um novo desafio. Cruzando prados, ribeiros e florestas, o praticante sente-se parte integrante do espaço que percorre... A velocidade de movimento tem que ser acompanhada pela velocidade de raciocínio para ler o mapa e interpretar a relação mapa / terreno, ponderar sobre as várias opções de itinerário, decidir! Equipamento de Orientação Basicamente, para praticar orientação é necessário apenas um mapa. Tradicionalmente, a bússola é o principal auxiliar para se conseguir encontrar o objectivo, mas não é essencial.

Funchal City Race 2018

I Rogaining do Funchal 2018

December, 8 to 9 | Funchal www.funchalcityrace.com Funchal City Race is an event that combines the discovery of the historical areas and the less explored places of the city of Funchal, with the adventure of an Orienteering race. Everyone, from any age, can enter with the option of competitive participation or simple leisure, along with family or friends.

December, 21st | Funchal rogaining.camadeira.com The Madeira Adventure Club annually organizes the first edition of the Rogaining do Funchal 2018, an orienteering race also know as Ori-Trail.

th

What is Rogaining? Rogaining is the sport of long distance cross-country navigation. The championship rogaine is of 24 hours duration but there are several shorter variants. Teamwork, endurance, competition and an appreciation of the natural environment are features of the sport. Rogaining involves both route planning and navigation between checkpoints using a variety of map types. Rogaines are generally day and night events in which teams of two to five members travel entirely on foot, navigating by map and com-

pass. Teams select their own order of visiting checkpoints in terrain that varies from open countryside to hilly forest. A central base camp provides hot meals and teams may return at any time to eat, rest or enjoy the fellowship. Teams travel at their own pace, and anyone from children to grandparents can experience the personal satisfaction that comes from crosscountry navigation at individual levels of competition and comfort. Do you enjoy the outdoors? If so rogaining may be for you and your friends and family.

O Clube Aventura da Madeira organiza a 1ª edição do Rogaining do Funchal, evento de orientação também conhecido como Ori-Trail. Esta prova está aberta a todos os interessados com escalões abertos e de competição.

Rogaining ou Ori-Trail

O Funchal City Race é um evento que alia a descoberta das zonas históricas e os locais menos explorados da cidade do Funchal, com a aventura de uma prova de orientação citadina. Qualquer pessoa, de qualquer idade, pode participar com a opção de participação competitiva ou apenas de lazer.

Rogaine é uma modalidade onde a Orientação pedestre é complementada pela estratégia de eleger os controlos a visitar, em equipa de 2 a 5 elementos, em grandes espaços e com um tempo limite. A escolha dos itinerários é livre e cada controlo tem uma valorização em pontos, sendo o objetivo de cada equipa conseguir a máxima pontuação no tempo definido. O conjunto de controlos disponíveis deve ser suficientemente alargado para que não seja possível realizá-los todos no tempo da prova obrigando assim à definição de uma estratégia por parte de cada equipa. A nível internacional a modalidade surgiu na Austrália em 1976, depois no Canadá e hoje em dia tornou-se popular em paises como a Nova Zelandia, EUA, Rússia, Irlanda e Suécia. Em 1989 foi criada a International Rogaining Federation que passou a regular a modalidade e a organizar campeonatos do Mundo e da Europa.

Levada

How to get here With Funchal as a reference you can take the regional road (ER. 105) between Encumeada and Rabaçal or the following route: Take the Via Rápida (VR1) towards Ribeira Brava; In Ribeira Brava, follow the Via Expresso (VE3) towards Ponta do Sol and Calheta; Once you reach the village of Arco da Calheta, at the roundabout take the first exit towards E.R. 222; In Loreto follow the signs towards Rabaçal; Once there the walk on the right hand side.

Info by cmcalheta.pt

Points of Interest Levada do Alecrim is part of the network of levadas that start in the Rabaçal area. The starting point of this levada also leads us to Levada das 25 Fontes, Risco and Paul II. To start this Levada, also known as Paul I, follow the paved road a few meters towards the forestry house of Rabaçal. You’ll find a dirt trail visible just to the right, take this route and a few meters

ahead you meet the levada. This is a fairly easy, well-marked walk. During your walk you’ll be traveling through magnificent heather tunnels that almost enclose the path, making this a unique experience. Approximately 500 meters after the starting point you’ll cross Ribeira do Alecrim (Rosemary stream) that feeds the hydroelectric power station of Calheta. Along the way there is a high rate of endemic flora such as the Madeiran orchid and giant sow thistles. In addition to unique flora there are amazing views onto the Rabaçal and Ribeira da Janela valleys. Before arriving at the “Dona Beja” lake, you’ll cross a trail: to the right, you’ll be taken up to Lajeado; to the left down to Lagoa do Vento (this descent difficult and is only recommended for experienced walkers). Tributaries, which you’ll have to cross, flowing into the main streams are fairly frequent, although they do not present too much of a challenge. After more or less 3,4km you’ll arrive at the origin of the levada, where you can enjoy the pretty Dona Beja lake and the serene setting.

St. Anthony's Chapel of Mouraria

St. Anthony was born in Lisbon in 1195, near the Cathedral, registered as Fernando de Bulhões. At 15 he joined the order of St. Augustine Canons in Lisbon, and was later ordained in Coimbra where he would continue his studies. In 1221, after a rough trip in the Mediterranean, he arrived in Sicily, Italy. In Assisi he became an assistant to Saint Francis, teaching theology in Bologna, Montpellier, Toulouse and Padua, where he died at the age of 36, in 1231.

St. Anthony's Chapel of Mouraria was built on the grounds of the old Custom House of Funchal, near Rua da Alfândega. It actually sustains the wall opposite the altar on the old staircase leading to the main floor, dated mid-sixteenth century, as shown by the shape of the stone slabs, represented in the map of João Bartolomeu, dated 17th century. The chapel was built by the will of Judge João Aguiar, who would later be buried there. Even today one can read on his gravestone the inscription: Here lies the miserable sinner João Aguiar. Its actual construction dates 1714, having been completed and opened in 1715. The door, with its upholstered pads and iron rivets reveals its authenticity quite possibly being the same since the foundation of the temple. On the left as you enter, one should mention the holy water basin in white marble imported in mid-18th century as well as, on the wall, an oil painting of St. Anthony from an 18th century Portuguese workshop. Outstanding is the altar with national style baroque carvings, of upholstered wood, with traces of painting and gilding. The altar has three niches that support corbels, the center one being more voluminous. It has spiraled columns and straight entablature on the sides and round bow in the middle. This set should be dated by the late 17th century. In the center, on the corbel, is an image of St. Anthony with Child Jesus, of upholstered clay, painted and gilded, dated mid-eighteenth century, by a popular Portuguese workshop. The set is topped off below by a pediment of altar in painted wood imitating rich brocade, with its valance and borders also from the mid-eighteenth century. Two ceroferary angels were placed along the aisle, made by a Portuguese workshop probably from the northern region, also from the early 18th century. Suspended from the ceiling is a brass chandelier by a Portuguese workshop of mid-century. On the north wall hang a set of canvas paintings representing the Apostles, from a Lisbon workshop from mid to late 18th century. In another show case is a set of sculptures, consisting of a head of Christ from the mid-17th century, a Baby Jesus from a Goan workshop of the late 16th century, beginning of the 17th century, as well as majesty Virgin dated mid 16th century, all in polychrome wood. Beneath the arch of the stairs, on the back wall, an entablature by a Portuguese engraver from the mid-17th century, with its polychrome and gilding original, over a painting of the Baptism of Christ, from the early 18th century.

Assembleia Legislativa da Região Autónoma da Madeira (Antiga Alfândega do Funchal)

Capela de Santo António da Mouraria A capela de Santo António da Mouraria foi mandada erguer dentro do recinto da antiga Alfândega do Funchal, junto à rua da Alfândega, antiga rua dos Mercadores. Assenta mesmo a parede oposta ao altar, na antiga escadaria de acesso ao andar nobre, de meados do século XVI, como se pode ver pelo recorte das lajes de pedra, e que estão representadas na planta de Bartolomeu João, já no século XVII. Ao longo dos séculos a antiga Alfândega do Funchal sofreu muitas obras de adaptação e renovação. A capela, de pequenas dimensões, foi mandada construir por testamento do desembargador João Aguiar, juiz da Alfândega do Funchal, em 1710, que lá viria a ser enterrado. Ainda hoje podemos ver na lápide sepulcral, apesar de partida, resultado de uma profanação, a inscrição: Aqui jaz o miserável pecador João de Aguiar desembargador provedor, que foi nesta ilha. A capela de Santo António da Mouraria do Funchal abria-se para a esplanada do reduto militar da Alfândega, hoje uma praça. O portal da entrada rasga-se na parede sul, com suas duplas pilastras e impostas, e chave moldurada no arco de volta perfeita. Apresenta cornija complexa e entablamento de onde partem aletas opostas com terminais espiralados no sentido interior, interrompidas por motivos vegetalistas, onde se abre cartela, com fitas e enrolamentos de óvalos e a inscrição: Ad Salem Sol. Esta inscrição foi interpretada como simplificação da expressão: Ad Salutem Sol Beatus Antonius. Santo António foi considerado após o Concílio de Trento, como a renovação da Igreja: O Sol da Salvação do Ocidente. Este portal pode ser considerado uma das primeiras experiências de efeito barroco na arquitetura, na Ilha da Madeira, pela criação de possibilidades perspécticas, muito típicas das cenografias da época. Curiosa é também a sobrevivência de três fenestrações em ritmo informal, muito próximas de modelos anteriores, como as características do Maneirismo ou estilo Chão. Deve referir-se a presença de um lavabo ou pia de cantaria, de secção retangular, com seu recetáculo escavado para a água. Interessante é também um cunhal, no vértice nascente da capela, que parece ser o reaproveitamento de elementos arquitetónicos mais antigos, como se conhecem na própria Alfândega do Funchal. A porta, com suas almofadas volumosas e rebites de ferro, revela a sua autenticidade, sendo muito possivelmente a mesma desde a fundação do templo. Não sobreviveu nada da decoração interior, sendo o conjunto hoje exposto resultado dos restauros e aquisições da década de oitenta do século XX, por decisão da Assembleia Legislativa da Madeira. À esquerda de quem entra, deve referir-se a pia de água benta em mármore branco de importação de meados do século XVIII, assim como na parede uma pintura a óleo sobre tela de Santo António de uma oficina portuguesa já setecentista. Deve destacar-se o altar em talha barroca de estilo nacional, em madeira estofada, com vestígios de pintura e douramento. O altar tem três nichos que sustentam mísulas, sendo mais volumosa a central. Apresenta colunas espiraladas e entablamento

reto nas laterais e arco de curvatura redonda na central. Este conjunto deve datar-se ainda de finais do século XVII. Ao centro, na mísula, uma imagem de Santo António com o Menino, de barro estofado, pintada e dourada, de meados do século XVIII, de uma oficina popular portuguesa. O conjunto é rematado inferiormente por frontão de altar, em madeira pintada imitando rico brocado, com sua sanefa e sebastos, também de meados do século XVIII. Foram colocados junto ao altar dois anjos ceroferários de uma oficina portuguesa, provavelmente da região norte, também de inícios do século XVIII. Suspenso no teto está um lampadário de latão de uma oficina portuguesa de meados do mesmo século. Na parede norte é visível um conjunto de pinturas sobre tela representando Apóstolos, de uma oficina lisboeta de meados para finais do século XVIII. Na fiada superior, da direita para a esquerda, São Paulo, São Simão, São Filipe, São Mateus, São Judas Tadeu. Na inferior, também da direita para a esquerda, São João, São Pedra, Santo André, São Tiago Menor e São Matias. Foram adquiridos para o serviço litúrgico da capela, a quando da sua recuperação, um conjunto de peças de interesse em latão polido. Refira-se uma Naveta de grande sobriedade formal, para o transporte do incenso, próxima a uma conhecida da igreja da Água de Pena, hoje no Museu de Arte Sacra do Funchal, datada de inícios do século XVII. Ainda um castiçal de mesa, num modelo que sobrevive deste o século XVI e por todo o século XVII na península ibérica, e uma caldeirinha que deve datar de meados do século XVII. Do conjunto destaca-se ainda um turíbulo de metal amarelo de meados do século XVIII. Dentro de outra vitrine observa-se um conjunto de esculturas, constituído por uma cabeça de Cristo de meados do século XVII, um Menino Jesus de uma oficina goesa de finais do século XVI, inícios do século XVII, assim como um Virgem majestade de meados do século XVI, todas em madeira policromada. Na parede ainda um fragmento de talha, com vestígios de estofo e policromia representando um querubim alado, de meados do século XVII. Sob o arco das escadas, na parede de fundo, um entablamento de um entalhador português de meados do século XVII, com sua policromia e douramento original, sobre uma pintura do Batismo de Cristo, de inícios do século XVIII.
