Madeira trip report: GARDENS
Madeira is very green and has lots and lots of weird and beautiful plants and flowers. There are innumerable gardens to visit, here are the ones we tried
Jardim Botanico - Lots of cool plants and a great view over Funchal. Buy the fennel candy from the souvenir shop. Funchal is actually named after fennel,"funcho" in Portuguese.
Monte - the town park (municipal gardens). Down the stairs from the square and you're in paradise!
Palheiro Gardens - beautiful but expensive, entry fee is 8 Euros.
