Parque Florestal Luís Paulo Camacho
Gardens, Parks and Forests
Close to Santa Cruz on the island of Flores is the Parque Luís Paulo Camacho. It is characterised by a very broad range of botanical plants, most notably conifers and some examples of the local endemic flora.
Visitors can enjoy the park's picnic area and a small zoo containing exotic birds such as pheasants, widow-birds, Japanese quails, mandarin ducks, finches, New Zealand parrots, parakeets and various domestic birds, as well as a herd of deer.
On your visit to the park be sure to walk up to the view point with its superb view over the reservoir formed by the Ribeira da Fazenda dam.
