Lots of history attached to this place, it's been the home if several famous people. The grounds are worth a visit in themselves with magnificent views over the harbour. There's an aviary too. Inside is beautiful too, rather like a museum if Madeiran history.

the gardens of the palace of the president of Madeira are daily open and free to visit. I liked the formality a contrast to the more informal santa Catherina park next door also on avenida do infante.
