We were looking forward to visiting here, but were disappointed after seeing the lovely Tropical Gardens at Monte a few days earlier. By contrast, the Botanical Gardens look as if they have seen better days, with some particularly run down areas. Worse though, is the parrot section, where the birds are shut in small grubby cages with very little to stimulate them - it was really quite depressing to see. For one of the major attractions in Madeira, this really needs some TLC to restore it to its former glory.
