Не путать с местом с таким же названием из Рио.

Quinta da Boa Vista Gardens

Quinta da Boa Vista helps recreate the habitats of several plant species close to extinction. There are areas dedicated to the South American bromeliads, Australian martinetes and African aloes. The main attraction is, however, the 20-year-old orchid exhibition.
The Quinta da Boa Vista Garden is at Lombo da Boa Vista Street, 9050 - Funchal. Open Monday to Saturday, from 9.00am to 17.30pm (except on public holidays).

Jardins da Quinta da Boa Vista

Uma das principais aspirações da Quinta da Boa Vista é tirar vantagem do clima inigualável da Madeira para recriar habitats semelhantes aos habitats de origem das muitas espécies em perigo iminente de extinção.
Neste jardim há sectores dedicados a Bromeliads da América do Sul, Martinetes da Austrália e Alóes de África.
O principal centro de atracção da quinta é, talvez, a exposição de orquídeas, que têm vindo a ser coleccionadas e galardoadas ao longo de 20 anos.
De Dezembro a Maio, as estufas de orquídeas constituem exposições florais verdadeiramente espectaculares: Cymbidums, Paphipedilums (sapatinhos) e Lycastes aí predominam, enquanto que no resto do ano, uma colecção de híbridos soberbos e espécies raras despertam a curiosidade dos visitantes.
O Jardim Quinta da Boa Vista localiza-se na Rua Lombo da Boa Vista, no Funchal. Pode ser visitado de segunda-feira a sábado, das 09:00 às 17:30 (excepto feriados).

Судя по описанию орхидеи там тоже важная часть, потому что их там тысячи в тени под навесами. Но и сам сад очень красив. К сожалению, посетители из-за красоты орхидей сам сад почему-то не фотографируют, не могу найти ни одной фотгграфии.

Boa Vista Orchids

Quinta da Boa Vista
The best orchid collection on show all year round

Just a 5 minute car ride from the centre of Funchal, or 20 minutes if you're walking, will bring you into the tranquil setting of Boa Vista Orchids. This former working estate (quinta) is guaranteed to give you an 'all round experience' of the beauty and peacefulness that Madeira has to offer. The gardens include one of the last and oldest remaining systems of walled

terracing, as they were back in the 19th century to be found within the close proximity of the city centre. Visitors to the estate will also chance upon the vestiges of that era such as the wine press and original storage house alongside, not to mention also the thatched cow house which looks so perfect in this setting. The quinta formerly grew market garden produce for visiting ships until approximately 60 years ago when the estate was prepared for Estrelicia plants and cut flower production. These days the estate proudly displays the best orchid collection on the island. Cut flowers (sold in season) and plants are available for purchase, plus many rare and unusual varieties can be seen.



After the tour of our estate you are kindly invited to relax on the large sheltered and spacious lawn of the Quinta. A true opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of Madeira!


The orchid flowering season is year-round, and as one group passes its peak another will be commencing, the showy blooms of the Cattleyas, Cymbidiums and Paphiopedilums (slipper orchids), which lift a considerable proportion of the trophies at the annual Madeira Flower Festival, mingling with the smaller but in many ways more intriguing natural species. As a bonus, many of the thousands of different varieties of orchids on show here are deliciously fragrant, a fact which is not widely known or appreciated.



Orchids, however, are not the only flowers to admire in the Quinta da Boa Vista, as the garden itself contains many other interesting exotic plants, which flower in their turn throughout the year. There is a comprehensive collection of Bromeliads to be seen, as well as Frangipani, Hibiscus, Passion Flowers, Aloes and much more to surprise the mind of an enquiring visitor.


Opening Hours:
Monday to Saturday 09.00 to 17.30
(Closed Sundays and public holidays)

Entrance:
Euros 3.50 - Feb 1st until May 31st
Euros 2.50 - June 1st until Jan 31st



HISTORY & BACKGROUND

The BOA VISTA ORCHID GARDEN was founded in the 1960s by the late Group Captain Cecil Garton, O.B.E., in the grounds of the Quinta da Boa Vista, which had been in his family for the past 100 years or so, and where he himself was born. After 30 years in the Royal Air Force, latterly spent as Air Attache in Lisbon and Madrid, he retired to Madeira where he took over the post of Honorary British Consul and devoted himself to developing the Quinta garden and to growing orchids. Cecil Garton"s widow, Betty, is the daughter of Sir William Cooke, one of the pioneers of orchid breeding, particularly of Cymbidiums, as well as being a collector of rare and beautiful natural species. Both father and daughter served for many years on the Orchid Committee of the Royal Horticultural Society, and the Orchid collection then known as Wyld Court Orchids, near Newbury in Berkshire, received considerable recognItion from the R.H.S. in the form of First Class Certificates, Awards of Merit and Medals, culminating in the distinction of Grand Champion Hybrid and Best in Show for a home-raised seedling at the British Orchid Council Congress Show.

After inheriting these plants, Betty brought them to join the others in Madeira, where she is continuing the hybridizing programme. Apart from the developement of exciting new hybrids, one of the most important projects now is the propagation of rare and endangered natural species, as their habitats in the wild are increasingly being destroyed. Their son Patrick began painting after leaving Oxford University in 1990 with a degree in Botany, after which he pursued a horticultural career, spending three years at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, where he obtained their Horticultural Diploma. He is currently producing a series of watercolours based on orchids from the family nursery in Madeira, an exhibition of which recently received a Gold Medal from the Royal Horticultural Society when displayed in their hall in Westminster. His sister Dorothy is also deeply involved in the natural world, her specific concerns being aromatherapy and herbalism, within the realm of ancient Hindu practices.
