Took the cable car up to the garden. Walked down the garden learned som history about Portugal. Enjoyed a cafe and complimentary port wine. The garden was big. Nice and fresh air quality here and all of Madeira.

These gardens were amazing. You need to be able to walk up hills as the garden is spread over the mountain side, but defintely worth the effort. Far better in our opinion that the Botanical gardens.

Good idea to check whats going to be in bloom and choose which Tropical garden to visit as there was not a lot in bloom but still a lovely garden to visit and the views are great.

Beautiful gardens with beautiful scenery. Very steep in places so you need decent footwear. We spent good few hours just wondering around
