Wedged between two tunnels on the Portuguese Island of Madeira, the João Gomes bridge is located in a deep canyon that is a nearly picture perfect setting for a high bridge. Just 30 miles (48 kms) in length, Madeira is a year round resort island with a population of a quarter million people. As part of a volcanic archipelago, Madeira has many deep canyons and gorges that come down from the higher peaks in the center of the island.
