Gardens and Parks

Madeira is also known for the variety of its gardens and parks, carefully cared and appreciated by locals as well as visitors. The subtropical climate allows the survival of a wide variety of flowers, plants and trees from all over the world, whose aromas and colours give the island a natural charm. Strelicias, magnolias, anthuriums, orchids… there are always flowers blooming, in any season.

 

There are also several farms in Madeira with beautiful gardens, old trees, flowers and ponds; this inspires calmness in a romantic atmosphere that deserves to be visited.

 

Wherever we are, nature is always present, even in the heart of Funchal, winner of the Gold Award in “Cities and Villages in Europe – 2000”.
