One of Madeira’s greatest tourist attractions is its luxuriant and varied vegetation, which combines the characteristics of tropical and Mediterranean climates, giving rise to a rich and diversified mosaic of different plants.
During your holidays, we suggest you pay a visit to the Laurisilva Forest, classified by UNESCO as world heritage both for its exuberance and rarity. Originating from the Tertiary Era, this forest may be considered a living relict, both because of the area that it occupies and because of its excellent state of conservation.
Madeira is also famous for the harmonious forms and contrasting colours of its innumerable exotic plants, originating from almost every continent, which have adapted so well to the climate and soil here, affording the island its unique charm.
Due to existing climatic conditions, all year round you can admire flowers such as orchids, birds-of-paradise, anthuriums, magnolias, azaleas, proteas and many others, all growing in a natural environment.
Discover the great variety of carefully kept parks and gardens and the subtropical characteristics of the climate that make it possible to develop such an exuberant vegetation, rich in aromas, colours and unimaginable landscapes.
When you visit Madeira, don’t miss the opportunity to get to know all these wonders of nature and the island’s majestic scenery. It will be difficult to resist the temptation to discover the different attractions of this genuine paradise.
