Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The edge of Madeira New Year's celebrations is the fantastic fireworks show in Funchal amphitheatre.Funchal’s amphitheatre is transformed into a magnificent crib illuminated by more than 250.000 coloured lights .... while the hillsides are dotted with white lights, setting the scene for an unforgettable display. When the clock strikes twelve on 31st of December, the skies are lit up with fire, colour and hope for the New Year .... which could not get off to a better start.
