On the middle of Funchal, totally open and free, it’s amazing to find such a lovely garden, to stop a little bit and relax or observe the people around!!

These are fairly small gardens but really are a delight to walk around and spot all the different species and also just to sit and relax in the shade. There are some really pretty well shaped trees and beautiful flowers. Well worth a visit.

Small sized garden but very nice to walk true. Great trees and flowers even in March. Once walked here in the night, better not done. In the night there are a lot of drunk men. During the daytime is great to see

The planting is lovely and even though small, a walk around it is rewarded with views of tremendous variety. We were there at the time of the Flower festival and the colours were amazing as was the perfume too.
