Santa Catarina Park, Funchal

(1,200+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Take in nature and great views of the harbor at Santa Catarina Park. This peaceful city park offers many benches and areas to sit back and relax, read, or simply people-watch while listening to the trickling fountains. Watch the big cruise ships pull in and out of the harbor below. For small children there is a playground located on the grounds, as well as a small lake that is home to many swans and ducks. Stroll through the aviaries and sculptures and stop by the two old machines on display--one used to crush grapes and one to steamroll roads.

  • After a wander around the city of Funchal this beautiful park is a gentle oasis of calm and quiet to have a lovely rest in the shade and watch the world go by.  more »
  • With free entrance this well cared for park is full of lovely trees and flowers. Although it is on a hill there are slopes and shallow steps.  more »
  • while in Madeira we went to a few parks, this one was the only free one we visited and was possibly my favourite, lots of exotic flowers and huge succulents to see, it was lovely just strolling around...  more »

  • A nice park in walking distance from the port. The selection of flowers is the best apart from the tropical gardens
  • It's usually calm. It's nice and pretty. And it's a piece of nature in a busy city.
  • Lovely green space overlooking Funchal. Parks are rare because of the terrain so a nice place to picnic
  • Best place in Funchal to enjoy ocean view and beautiful Funchal
  • Really nice park with a beautiful view on the marina. Very quiet and clean.
