Atlantis

This small rock is the independent Principality of Atlantis. Situated on the harbour wall in Funchal. By an anomaly it was owned by the Blandy family, a Madeira Wine producer, and was somehow excluded when Madeira was ceded to Portugal. Bought by an artist who styles himself Prince Renato it retains its independence, though Madeira refuses it an electricity supply. Visitors are welcome. The top frame shows the country, about the size of a one bedroom hause. The bottom frame shows the Prince's swimming pool. :)
