Quinta das Palmeiras
Quinta das Palmeiras is a mini-zoo and mini-botanical garden, it offers visitors the opportunity to see several bird species and a variety of lush plants in a covered area of 5,380 m2.
This garden offers a surprising patch of green, as it is located near a dry area west of Porto Santo airport.
This beautiful space was born from a project by Carlos Alfonso, who for some time was dedicated to the cultivation of a variety of plants, with particular emphasis on species such as palm trees, eucalyptus and "heartwood" ( Metrosideros excelsa).
This oasis offers a haven of shade with an emphasis on flowers such as roses, torch lilies, hibiscus and Angel’s trumpets, among others, adding a unique set of colors to this garden.
Here you can find a small lake with swans and ducks, as well as some birds such as pigeons, parrots, macaws, among others.
