At €6.00 entry fee this place is certainly a must see. The gardens are extensive, clean and well manicured. The fariety of trees, flowers, herbs and fruits reflect the diversity of crops that flourish on this incredible island.

This is a secluded park within striking distance of the main shopping / cafe area of Funchal. You can find a quiet seat within the park for a rest or visit the market which is sometimes setup there.
