  • We visited both the Madeira Botanical Garden as the Monte Palace gardens and found the latter much better. The Madeira Botanical Garden is probably more special if you're really a 'botanical person...

  • Beautiful gardens nestled in the hills above Madiera. Hike to the cable car and enjoy the scenic ride down into the gardens. Then stroll downhill through the gardens.

  • In the botanic gardens, you get some spectacular views over the city. In terms of blossoms, I‘d say the check board flowers in pink and green are the highlight of the place - I guess due to the general heat, having too many flowers is simply not doable. You do get some walkways with cacti, a lot of green plants and trees and generally a nice walkway, simply going further down the hill in nice scenery.
  • Come here if you have nothing else to do in the city and want to kill some time. Otherwise, don't feel to sorry if you miss it. Must admit, I was expecting a bit more colorful flowers. It should have been either free entry or max of 2€... Best part is the cacti section.
