Madeira's gardens offer visitors a truly unforgettable spectacle of colours, aromas and life. It is no coincidence that this archipelago is often described as a garden suspended in the ocean. In fact, the exuberance of Nature blooms in every corner.
The privileged subtropical climate of this Autonomous Region is an essential condition for the development of a very diverse and exotic flora. For this reason, Madeira's gardens allow visitors to contemplate trees, plants and flowers from all continents of the world.

Some of these tropical and subtropical species were brought to the island in the 18th and 19th centuries by British traders who chose the parishes of Monte, Camacha, Santo da Serra and Jardim da Serra to build their estates. Some of Madeira's best-known and unique gardens are located on estates with a romantic atmosphere, featuring century-old trees, vivid flowers and ponds.
