Madeira is conisdered as one of the candidates of what the Greeks described in their mythology as the Fortunate Isles. These islands were thought to lie in the Western Ocean near the encircling River Oceanus. The gods sent many mortal heroes to the Fortunate Islands for an afterlife of gentle weather, agricultural abundance, and eternal bliss.
