Jardim Botânico do Faial

Created in 1986 on a former agricultural farm, the Faial Botanical Garden is dedicated to the conservation of landscape biodiversity and environmental education and awareness. Occupying an area of approximately 8000 square meters, you can find, in this space, the natural flora of the Azores (coastal vegetation, medium altitude vegetation, altitude vegetation and vegetation of ravines and sheltered areas), ornamental and exotic plants and an area of medicinal plants. A short film about the garden is shown in the auditorium of the visitor center. The visitor center also includes a library and a bar where you can sample teas from the garden itself.
