The modern, Portugeuse archipelago of Madeira seems to have been identified by some ancient authors with the "Fortunatae Insulae" or "Blessed Islands".

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
