  • Botanical Garden as it should be. It is interesting if you like botanic and plants. If not, then it could be a bit disappointing, because expectations are high thanks to the hype in tourist...

  • Beautiful way to spend a day in Madeira. There’s so many flowers blooming, different areas dedicated to different species. If you love flowers you won’t be disappointed here. Even if you’ve been there before you will see something new on your next trip as we did. Not all flowers bloom at the same time of year so there will be something new every time you go. They also have a great cafe for food and drinks with an amazing view. No complaints here. Just all out natural beauty.
  • Lovely garden, in need of a little better upkeep in places, possibly a hangover from the pandemic. The cacti are spectacular, however, and it's worth a visit for these alone. Great city views and a couple of good cafes for a spot of lunch. There's a minimum spend for card so have some cash handy if you just want a drink.
