“Lovely place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Wonderful place with views and lovely plants and flowers. Only thing I did not like was the aviary because of the stark concrete cages it just felt wrong!

“Wrong Time of Year?!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We were disappointed with these gardens as there was not much in the way of colour, as most of the plants were not in flower.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

This is two cable car rides from the centre of Fuchal. The first cable car takes you to Monte quite a way up in the mountains then it is a short walk to a cable car that takes you down to the botanical gardens. There were loads of flowers in bloom and an interesting parrot park (although the cages werent brillant I had hoped to see them in a larger aviary). The cafe serves lovely coffee and nata cakes with a fantastic view. The return trip by cable cars and entrance to gardens cost 30 euros so quite expensive but worth it.

“Very disappointing.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

I thought that this would be a great place to go, but the gardens were very small and very casual. I thought that we would see a lot of unusual garden ideas but no.
