Madeira Palacio to be sold
The Journal reports that hotel group Enotel, run by by Madeiran Estêvão Neves, is on a short list to purchase what remains of the Madeira Palacio hotel. According to the paper there are just three companies remaining in the race to purchase the shell that was the Madeira Palacio, including groups based in Spain and Mexico. Apparently the bank that repossessed the site and holds the title has already eliminated 36 interested parties. Ten years after closing, the sale should be determined in the coming weeks!

The Diario has a link to this YouTube video, showing the current condition of the “old” coast road between São Vicente and Porto Moniz. Not surprising, large sections of the ER101 are closed nowadays!
