“Very Nice Garden”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

A well laid out garden and very peaceful. Excellent views of Funchal and the harbour. A small coffee shop in the grounds where you can while away some time. Well worth a visit.

“Beautiful garden and free!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Beautiful garden which is free for everybody to visit. I like the little coffee-shop, one of the places where you can get a milkshake! Beautiful mix of plants and in good order. There is also a pond where different ducks live.

“Beautiful park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We found this beautiful little park just outside the centre of Funchal with fantastic views over the harbour, it is so peaceful and pretty . We just used to sit and look at the fountains and relax. There is a small cafe which we also used.

“Good stop off on walk from hotel district to town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

If you are walking from the hotel district into town stop off here. There is a small outdoor cafe or you can just sit on one of the benches and relax. Lovely garden with small lake, fountains and great views over the town and marina. Very peaceful. The chapel in the garden was closed when I visited.
