Quinta Splendida

BOTANICAL GARDEN

Quinta Splendida

The Botanical Garden of Quinta Splendida extends over 30,000 m² and the current layout was created in 1990 following the design of the owner, Mr. Giancarlo Bertoli. The Quinta Splendida Botanical Garden has over 1,000 plant species with 650 plants being labelled and employs a team of six gardeners. The interpretation of the garden design ensures that continuous flowering is seen throughout the seasons. A wide variety of endemic species and plants are naturally cultivated in a promiscuous order. To some extent the plants have been imported from the Canary Islands and the owner has worked closely with the Botanical Garden in Funchal leading to an exchange of plant species.

Quinta Splendida

The title of Botanical Garden was awarded by the Government to Quinta Splendida in recognition of this work and the design of the garden. The Quinta Splendida Botanical Garden is a perfect setting for guest accommodation fully integrated into the property in low elevation surroundings.
