Quinta das Rosas

Gardens, Parks and Forests

Quinta das Rosas is a Forestry Reserve situated close to the town of Madalena, and provides a pleasant leisure space with a picnic area, some small lakes and other recreational facilities.

One of its most notable features is a Maroiço, a characteristic structure of the island of Pico, consisting of a mound built from loose stones whose purpose is to remove the excess stones from the soil.

There is a remarkable variety of botanical plants to be found on the Quinta, such as the tree fern originating from Australia, aucubas, camellias, hibiscus, trumpet plants and bush lilies. Also to be found here are a number of fruit trees such as avocado, almond and plum, as well as various large trees such as planes, palms, horse chestnuts, araucarias and dragon-trees.
