Palheiro Gardens , Funchal
Categories: Gardens, Nature & Parks
Perched atop a hill overlooking the picturesque port city, Palheiro Gardens draws visitors from around the world with its vast collection of camellias, which includes several species that are more than two centuries old. The English-style gardens sit about 500 m (1,600 ft) above sea level and benefit from a microclimate ideal for growing a range of native and exotic plants from Africa, Australia, and China. The focal point of this manicured park is an 18th century manor house that was originally built as a hunting lodge. Open throughout the year, the gardens form part of a large estate boasting its own hotel, golf course, and orchid nursery.

Lovely gardens at the home of the famous Blandy family, full of Monarch butterflies and wonderful tress and flowers. Plenty of seating to sit and relax plus a tea house. Well worth a visit.

May not be the most favorable time to visit this garden. There were nice parts but compared to the botanical garden was the price a lot higher and certainly not the garden more beautiful.show original
Riesenschachtelhalm MitteGreat garden with large plant specimens of rare-looking types. Many camellias also very old verurwaldete copies. Big old Magnolia trees. The selling point of the system is located in particular vegetation. Who is interested in flowering plants planted in rows, will be replaced immediately after the withering, may not really be found. The system is less mountainous/steep as Jardim Botanico and Monte tropical garden. At the beginning, you must run a piece, but rather just. The plant is also significantly quieter / less full than the two aforementioned and acts in total quiet and relaxed.show original
