Fodor's Review

The Botanical Garden is on the grounds of an old plantation 3 km (2 miles) northeast of Funchal. Its well-labeled plants—including anthuriums, bird-of-paradise flowers, and a large cactus collection—come from four continents. Although some parts of the gardens were damaged by fires on the island in 2016, new blooms are coming through, and it is still possible to savor wonderful views of Funchal, and check out the petrified trunk of a 10-million-year-old heather tree. There's also a natural-history museum and a small exotic-birds garden. You can get here on Bus 29, 30, or 31, which stop across the street from the market in front of Madeira's Electric Company.
