  • All who visit Madeira must experience this incredible beautiful park. Set aside a half-day if you must experience mostly ... Here is a piece of paradise, tropical plants, waterfalls, fountains, plants and flowers from all over the world. There are many many trails around the Park. The Park is located on the mountain slope so remember good shoes.

  • The garden offers plenty of variety and is well worth a visit in October. You can wander relaxed through the gardens and discovered all nice places. Fortunately, this place by the fire was spared. We are high with the cable car and drove the bus back down.
