Santa Catarina Park, Funchal

(4.5/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.
