Monte Palace Gardens, Madeira
backup100918010019.jpg
Monte Palace gardens on the Island of Madeira can be reached by cable car from the Funchal seafront.
The views from the cable car are wonderful and the gardens are stunning.
The gardens are set in a valley with steps down and back up again, so it may be difficult if you have problems with stairs, but it is well worth taking the cable car to visit the town, the church, and for the views across the bay and hills.
There are some amazing 1000 year old olive trees just outside the entrance, which were transferred from mainland Portugal when a hydroelectric dam was being built where they were originally growing.
Madeira also has a huge botanical gardens, easily reached by bus or taxi, with an outstandinging array of trees and plants from around the world as well as plants native to Madeira. The gardens are terraced down a hillside, so it is on a series of gentle slopes. There is a cafe half way down. While in Madeira you should also visit Palheiro Gardens by the golf course, Santa Catarina Park above the harbour, and the Municipal Park in the centre of Funchal.
