A lovely, old and well-groomed park amidst the busy capital. Best view over the harbour, many lovely benches to sit and soak in scenery and happily growing old trees and young plants. A perfect resting spot after a walk in town.

After a wander around the city of Funchal this beautiful park is a gentle oasis of calm and quiet to have a lovely rest in the shade and watch the world go by.

See above: much better than Monte Palace Tropical Garden! On one side great sea- and down-town Funchal view.

Sorry, no I didn't see one. We walked through the park 3 or 4 times. There is a building at the bottom end of the park that was having work done on it but not sure what it was
