Shall I say Madeira 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!
Madeira gardens are not planned, flowers simply grow…naturally spontaneously.
We carefully preserve our native forest “Laurissilva” or Laurel forest, classified World Heritage since 1999 and nowadays two-thirds of the island are Nature Reserve!
Come and visit us. We love sharing Madeira with you!
