    • Monte Tropical Garden or/and Botanical Garden in Funchal ?

      Região Autónoma da Madeira Jun 22, 2015 at 5:28 AM

      I'll write my questions below, to be more organized, I know I do ask a lot :)

      1. Can you please help me decide which one to visit? I'm not sure if I have the time for both of them.
      2. But if I do have the time, which one to visit first?
      3. Is there a logical and more efficient way to visit both gardens? I read that for Monte I should go up with the cable car and then if I choose a toboggan ride on my way down how do I get to the Botanical Garden again from the end of the toboggan ride?
      4. If I visit them both, do I still have time for other activities in the city, like visiting the marina, wandering in the old town etc?

      Many thanks,

      I have been told that many years ago (1800s), unwanted children were left at the hospital/convents in Camara de Lobos and often got the last name of 'de Camara'. How can I verify this? I have several people in my lineage from Camara de Lobos, Madeira with this last name who also have 1 parent or none listed on their baptism certificates.
