I finally managed to go through all of the pictures (see former post) and uploaded here some of my favourites:
While walking through the Tropical Garden you could also admire 40 tile panels telling the Portuguese history, beginning with the kingdom of Dom Afonso Henriques and ending with a panel dedicated to the Third Republic.
Leaving Funchal to go to the island of Porto Santo
Santana is a beautiful village characterised by its small thatched triangular houses. They are built with natural stone and thatched with straw… Most of the ones picture were different souvenir shops.
One of the houses was actually a lovely flower shop where you could buy some of the marvellous flowers of the island and plant them home yourself! I bought three of them and hope I’ll manage to grow them. “I’m the king of the wooooorld!”
