Quinta das Vistas Palace Gardens was inaugurated in May 2002 and is the result of a construction of a Manor house situated in a rise with wonderful and stunning panoramic views.
It used to belong to a famous doctor – Dr. Américo Durão, who had a private clinic and huge gardens surrounding the areas which are still the same original gardens with its centenary trees from our laurel forest classified as world heritage by UNESCO.
The owner of the house had a passion for our atlantic ocean so its collection of fishing boats. It´s engines are spread all over our gardens to decorate it.
The décor of public areas reflects the luxury of such a centerpiece and the elegance of the rich era of Madeira life.
