Jardim Botânico da Madeira (Madeira’s Botanic Garden) is located in some terraces which dominate the João Gomes Riverbank, in the city of Funchal. This garden was created in the old Quinta do Bom Sucesso Enclosure and, currently, it has odd examples of Madeiran and worldwide flora.

On its inside, an elegant white house is set up with green shutters hosting a little museum. This museum features botanical, geological and zoological exhibitions, on old wooden furniture with volcanic wood.

On the highest part of the garden you will find an overlook from where you will have wonderful views of Funchal’s port.

The botanic garden is connected to the town of Babosas (Monte) by a cable car which is a highly attractive tour, lasting around 9 minutes. The main station is found inside the botanic garden itself, and the other is located in Monte, besides the Lado das Babosas Lake. This cable car offers a panoramic tour with privileged views of the Funchal Bay and the Valle de Ribeira de João Gomes Valley, among others.

Attached to the botanic garden, is found the Jardín dos Loiros Garden, a recommendable place, especially if you travel with children, because going over it is a genuine safari in the colourful parrot’s world. It is included in the ticket price.
