The municipality of Santana annually promotes the Gastronomy Exhibit, an initiative whose main objective is to contribute to the promotion and appreciation of local cuisine.
This exhibit has a varied programme of events, with the participation of some artists of the regional and national music scene.
Synopsis: Jonathan will take you on a Nature trail within the 130 hectare of the Palheiro Estate landscape where you can observe some of Madeira wildlife such as the rare “Trocaz” pigeon and the Macaronesian Sparrowhawk.
The landscape of Palheiro Estate in now very different after the fires on July 18th 2012, when a large amount of forest was destroyed. Since then, with the help of government funding, a huge reforestation programme has begun, planting indigenous Madeira species such as; Til, Barbusano & Laurel, as well as the removal of invasive trees that were introduced to the Island – Mimosa and Eucalyptus. The result is a landscape offering stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Desertas islands, the bay of Funchal and the mountains of Madeira.
The Palheiro nature trails can be enjoyed on bikes, hiking or just a simple stroll in nature.

Info & Enrollment:
“Pinto” the Palheiro pony is doing well. His favourite treats are carrots!
He will be 6 months in November and is enjoying his Autumn walks around the Quinta.
Pinto was born in May this year in the field next to the quinta and has become the Palheiro mascot!
On the 7th of November Palheiro estate will be hosting a bird watching excursion together with SPEA (Portuguese Ornithological Society) in an attempt to spot some of the rarer species to be found at Palheiro Estate.
There are more than 20 species of birds at Palheiro Estate, a fair share of those to be found on the island. We are also privileged to have two rare endemic species nesting at Palheiro (The Macaronesian Sparrowhawk and Trocaz Pigeon) and have recently been visited by several migratory birds such as the Red-footed Falcon (in pic) and Cuckoo.
