Funchals Botanical gardens were once a private estate owned by the Reid family ( of the Reid hotel) Since 1960 it has been opened to the public and contains a rich collection of plants and trees spread over terraces rising to 1,000 feet above sea level. The gardens offer extensive views over Funchal and are a relaxing and accessible refuge from its urban bustle. Be sure to take some of the local Bolo de mel fruit cake and all your unwritten post cards
