A view from height looking over the harbour and Funchal town provides lovely photographic opportunities. Well maintained with a variety of tropical plants.

“Beautiful park”
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”
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.

“Beautiful park with wonderful views”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Our hotel's shuttle bus dropped us off right outside this park. It was a great place to sit and make plans for your day in Funchal. Fountains, ponds, gorgeous flowers and trees and views over the city and the ocean. What else is there to wish for in a park?

“Beautiful Park”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The park is very beautiful and offers great views over the harbour and out to see. A great place to relax, If walking out of Funchal, it is also an more pleasant walk than climbing the steep hill - Av. Do Infante.
