  • Fabulous gardens high above Funchal! It's easy to spend a whole day there. All sorts of flowers/ plants arranged in different themes. There's also a lovely cafe. It's possible to get a bus from the centre of Funchal. If driving, there is a car park opposite.
  • One of the must see places in Funchal. Bigger than it first looks and populated with so many varieties of plant. Stunning views over the city. Easy to get to on the 31 bus from the centre of town. €6 entry. Toilets and cafe on site. You could get the cable car down from Monte, if you are doing both in the same day.
