The Monte Palace Tropical Garden ~ Madeira

Madeira is famous for its gardens. And, close to the capital Funchal, there are is one garden which can’t be missed: the Monte Palace Tropical Gardens. The entrance is in the top part of the garden and while descending you’ll walk through different styles of gardens. Scattered through the park you’ll see fountains, statues, ceramic tiles and more. The walk is filled with discoveries. Make sure you have all day when coming here, you’ll need it!

The best way to get there: by cablecar. Just enjoy the views!
