Funchal airport Madeira island,owned by Portugal, off the coast of Morroco. Need special training because of the xwind coming off of the mountain. Was lengthened by use of large piers.

I thought there was also a road just outside the gate as well, so I'd be curious to understand what that means.
the runway was extended on the eastern side of the airport, after the lagoon was filled up. A bridge was built to allow cars to cross the lagoon, on the north eastern side.
