Of course, the Lost Places movement did not stop at
Madeira either. On Casa Vento&apo;s favorite
island there are buildings and other possessions that have been left for many
reasons and seem to have been abandoned. Often times it is too expensive to clean
up old dilapidated houses. Sometimes the ownership structure cannot be clarified,
for example if the owner has left the island or has died and the heirs do not know
or want to know nothing about their supposed happiness. Sometimes people just don't care.
Due to the rather moderate climatic conditions, many of the abandoned places are still very well preserved, unless they are near the sea, where the salty air eats its way mercilessly through the material, especially if it is metal.
With Holiday in Madeira you can discover the beauty of such alleged wastes of civilization and be amazed at the treasures waiting to be revived.
In any case, it is imperative that you respect private possessions, it is often better to ask for a right to visit in advance than to surprise neighbors or owners.
Of course, this category is regularly supplemented and expanded. Do you have a great tip? Then write us a message!

A certain amount of discovery is of course part of a visit to the Lost Places, it is often not easy to find the locations and even inside the old buildings it is often dark and winding corridors form labyrinths.

We have given the experiences a corresponding level, it relates to the accessibility
and the spaciousness. The lower the rating, the easier it is to reach the property.
The prevailing dangers also flow into the grade, they ensure an appreciation or
depreciation. The swimming pool at the airport, for example, is very easy to reach
(Level 1), very spacious (Level 1) but largely contains a risk of fall, as it is completely
unsecured. Therefore this Lost Place is given level 2.
