Rotterdam, Netherlands
Rotterdam is the largest seaport in Europe. It was the world's busiest port until 2004 when it was surpassed by Shanghai. The city sits on the banks of the river Nieuwe Maas, at the confluence of the Rhine and Meuse rivers. The name Rotterdam refers to the dam in the Rotte river.

Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain
The island of Tenerife is bisected by steep volcanic mountains cut by garden-like valleys lush with flowers and vegetation. In the capital of Santa Cruz' anthropological museum, learn about the original inhabitants of Tenerife, the stone age Guanche people, who eked out an existence as shepherds. Not to be missed is a spectacular drive into the mountains, where 3,718-metre Mount Teide, Spain's tallest mountain, is covered in snow much of the year.

Sal Island (Cape Verde Archipelago)
Santa Cruz de la Palma is a municipality in the eastern part of the island of La Palma in the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife of the Canary Islands. It is located along an old lava flow coming out from the Caldera, an inactive volcano just south of the city. The population is approximately 16,000.

Founded in 1493, it was an important port on the route between Europe and the American colonies and was once the third largest port in Europe.

The town's architectural heritage (in the Old Town) can be seen in its stately colonial style houses on cobblestone streets. This peaceful place has many cultural attractions including the insular Museum with its remarkable collection of paintings and art, as well as the Chico and Circo de Marte theaters.


Madalena, Azores
Madalena is a municipality along the western coast of the island of Pico, in the Portuguese Azores.

The settlement of the island of Pico occurred much later then most islands, partly due to greater interest shown in the other islands of the Central Group. For a time, only small herds, deposited by property-owners from Faial and Terceira, along with their caretakers (some of whom were slaves), were the only inhabitants of the island. It was not until the Infanta Beatriz proceeded to reorganize island administration and promote a greater colonization of the islands of the Central Group (between 1470 and 1480) that this changed. In 1483, Faial and Pico were integrated into one Captaincy, under the Flem Josse van Huerter, and settlers were encouraged to colonize the island of Pico.

By the first quarter of the 18th century, the municipality of Madalena was already entrenched in the "wine cycle" which had multiplied the riches of its landowners and increased the desire of local settlers for emancipation from the Captaincy of Faial. The introduction of grapes to the island had occurred almost immediately with the first settlers, along with the cultivation of wheat and production of wine and olive oil (that were staples of the traditionally Mediterranean Christian culture at the time).

In the 20th Century, the dairy industry continued the boom and bust cycle, while ecotourism centered on Pico and the histo-cultural nature of the island developed after European integration.
