There is a 4 euro entrance fee to enter the garden for which we got a map and a sample of the local liqueur in the café (ring for service if there's no-one there!), There is a wide range of trees and plants to see, including roses, cacti, a giant rubber plant, bamboo and an interesting "Mickey Mouse" plant. Allow... More

Entrance price = 4 €. This garden has a less formal layout as the other gardens. Many exotic trees, it feels as if you are walking through a tropical forest instead of a garden. A gigantic Moreton Bay Fig tree is one of the showpieces. Worth seeing are also the old orangery, now a party pavilion and in the back... More

This was a lovely spot to enjoy after a morning of touring the island by cab. Beautiful plant specimens and nice places to sit and rest a bit. The wall with the nasturtiums and the Crinnum bed were my very favorite. Be sure to pay when you walk in (it's easy to walk past the little booth) - we saw... More

Nothing special here just a nice place to visit on our walking tour of Ponta Delgada Portugal. Not worth the price of admission compared to other places we have been.

Very little to see apart from large tree specimens told 2 euro entry cost 7 euro for 2 people. The free gardens near by were far better looked after and more interesting. Would not visit again.

It was a cool but dry day and we walked through the gardens and our guide was able to talk us through the plants and trees. There is a small cafe in the grounds where we stopped and were given a local drink plus we purchased a cake and an ice cream. There was a wonderful sign on the door... More

There is an incredible rubber tree that is apparently 150 years old. The roots are incredibly huge and looks like big snakes, freaky to walk around it.

Very beautiful garden with enormous trees from all over the world. Many of the trees and plants are labeled, which is helpful and interesting. As of Feb. 2016, the entrance fee is 3.5 euros, well worth it. There are bathrooms at the far end. Be sure to look into the chapel, to the left of the entrance.

The place is a bit anarchic and there are no facilities as such. You just mooch around and follow where the paths take you. There are areas where you can't help wonder if you're really supposed to be there, and although every tree and shrub is fastidiously labelled, there is little guidance otherwise. No hothouses or displays to speak of,... More
