Madeira Botanical Gardens Tours

More than 2,000 plants populate this science and culture center in the heart of Madeira. The garden, which has been open since 1960, is divided into five main sections. The indigenous area showcases some 100 plants found in the region, while the tree garden displays flora from the Himalayas and the tropics. Another room houses succulents from South America, while a fourth examines medicinal tropical fruit trees. The final section, Loiro Park, is home to some of the most rare and exotic birds on earth.

Spend an afternoon exploring the grounds here, where scenic paths through forested land lead to manicured lawns and checkerboard foliage. Enjoy lunch or a snack in the botanical garden’s café. Visitors can also hop in the nearby cable car for a nine-minute ride above the grounds for a small fee.
