Hospício da Princesa D. Maria Amélia Garden

Located on Avenida do Infante, opposite to Santa Catarina Park, it can be visited every day and admission is free. Since 1873, this institution has been under the guardianship of the Swedish crown. Today, the main building is a home for the elderly, as well as a kindergarten and a primary school.

The garden of this foundation has a romantic feeling, it is endowed with a dense and varied mass of trees, paved walks with basaltic pebbles from the coast of Madeira, highlighting the drawings made with small pebbles of limestone brought from Porto Santo and it contains some corners for resting.

Despite its location next to one of Funchal’s busiest roads, this garden emanates a sense of peace and tranquillity.
