Parks and Gardens

The subtropical climate, the volcanic origin, the orography and the humidity of the region, allow the existence of a variety of exuberant vegetation, exotic flora, with high diversity.

Charles Darwin included several Madeiran species in his scientific works. James Cook, on the other hand, visited the archipelago in search of rare botanicals. He started systematic scientific thinking in Europe to get to know the flora and fauna.

Funchal offers us unique Parks and Gardens of immense beauty, with spaces ideal for pleasant walks and possible to visit at any time of the day, whatever the season.

Many of these gardens are dimensional with different textures, lights, colours, smells and some of them host events such as festivals and concerts.
