Formerly a hotel, the Monte Palace and its garden were purchased by Jose Berardo and restored and opened to the public in 1989. The garden has a famous collection of ceramic tiles, oriental gardens and a number of water features. Plant collections include both indigenous and exotic collections. The size of the garden is 18 ha - with plenty of walk ways to explore the many exotic and tropical plants and flowers.

Directions: Next to the upper station of the Funchal cable car
