So on my birthday we caught the bus into Funchal and from there took the cable car up to the Monte Palace Tropical Garden, buying the obligatory photo souvenir of the 2 of us on the cable car we were informed that a free glass of Madeira wine would be waiting in the gift shop. Hmm something just before we headed back down we thought.
On entering the Gardens we are informed that a free glass of Madeira would be waiting at the cafe at the bottom of the garden - they sure like to give away that Madeira wine!
It was a long wander around the gardens and I took lots of photos, here are the first few!
They have a huge display of crystals in one of the rooms some of them were massive!
