“A peaceful interlude”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

Lovely gardens with views over Funchal marina and coastline. Quiet and peaceful, yet just minutes from the bustling town centre. As well as a small lake (complete with swan) there's a statue of Christopher Columbus and the 15th century chapel to Santa Catarina, although this wasn't open to the public when we visited.

Enchanting!
