Flower Festival in Madeira

Every year during the spring season, when the flowers are at their best, Madeira hosts its annual flower festival. This is the finest time of year to get to know the beauty that Madeira Island has to offer you and experience one of the biggest touristic attraction that takes place every year.

This event spreads a fairy tale atmosphere all over the city centre of Funchal. The visitors marvel at the spectacular flower exhibits that cover the streets, houses and shops. The street processions have floats decorated almost entirely out of flowers as well as costumed dancers to new choreography every year making their way through the city´s Street. In the past few years, another popular feature called the “Wall of Hope” was added to this event. At the Col├ęgio Square, children build a large wall of flowers as a symbol of hope for a better and more peaceful world.

A small island full of beautiful flowers is really a beautiful sight! Have you imagined what it’s like being on such an island and letting yourself get intoxicated with nature’s floral perfumes flowing throughout the region?
