Small garden but beautiful. 1 euro to enter. Lovely well kept garden. Over looking the sea. Only takes about half hour to walk round. Well worth the euro! Don't miss it if you are in Funchal.

Lots of history attached to this place, it's been the home if several famous people. The grounds are worth a visit in themselves with magnificent views over the harbour. There's an aviary too. Inside is beautiful too, rather like a museum if Madeiran history.

This is the President's garden. Small & beautiful. Great views over harbour. 1 Euro each to enter...well worth it.

the gardens of the palace of the president of Madeira are daily open and free to visit. I liked the formality a contrast to the more informal santa Catherina park next door also on avenida do infante.

Please see my review of the Presidential Palace Gardens because it is another name for Quinta Vigia.

Relatively small garden but absolutely packed with well tended flowers and shrubs. Very exotic. Stunning views across Funchal Bay make it the perfect place for a visit.
