The beautiful Monte Palace Madeira surrounds a palace built by Alfredo Guilherme Rodrigues when he acquired the property in 1897. The garden aspect was established 100 years later in 1987 and features exotic plants as well as native ones, primarily from the Madeira forest. Travel along pathways past lakes with koi fish. View artworks integrated into the landscape, such as the garden's ceramic tile collection from the 15th century. A museum houses an exhibit of contemporary Zimbabwean sculpture and a collection of minerals and gems from around the world.

Monte Palace Madeira reviews
Very nice park although being quite pricey with 12.50€ - a lot of different plants, bridges and ponds. Very nice to walk through with friends to relax from the hikes. more »
Waterfalls beside the palace building and the Chinese garden with the Koi fish was my favourite parts. The grounds was an enjoyable experience with great views of Funchal. We decided to use local... more »
Lots of flowers in a well-maintained landscape. Free entry. A cafe with a spectacular orange cake, well worth all of its 7 euros. And the best of it all is the view over town. Absolutely recommended. There is also a hotel in the garden which shares the spectacular views. Check the clouds before you go up: if you can see the mountain station of the cable car, all is well.
Amazing and HUGE gardens. A must see if you come to Funchal. If you like taking photos of beautiful things you've come to the right place. There's quite a bit of walking involved so you can easily spend a whole day walking around. You can also get the cable car to the top entrance. Highly recommend.
