The Botanical Garden of Madeira, located in Funchal, boasts more than 2000 exotic plants from all over the world. It dates back to the 17th century the desire to provide Madeira with a Botanical Garden, an ambition that came to fruition in 1960.
The Botanical Garden, with an area of more than 35 000 m2, is endowed with more than 2000 exotic plants from all continents, with some botanical species in extinction. This fantastic garden consists of several ornamental trees and shrubs, an area with orchids, lawns, viewpoints and an amphitheater for recreational activities.
Given the growing loss of biodiversity and habitats worldwide, this garden has become a center of science and culture, with a view to the conservation of endangered plants that are as well adapted here as in their home environment.
Whether you are a nature lover or botanist, if you want to go around the world through the vegetable kingdom, visit a Natural History Museum and a Herbarium, then visit this garden that is located on the Middle Way in Funchal.
