Shall I say Madeira’s Gardens or Madeira is a Garden?
Well that is absolutely true, our island is a paradise for plants! We have always been on the “route” of naturalists and botanists over the centuries!
Madeiran gardens they are not planned, they grow…naturally at their own speed.
We preserve carefully our native forest “Laurissilva” or Laurel forest, classified World Heritage since 1999 and nowadays two thirds of the island are Natural Park!
Come and visit us we love sharing Madeira with you!
