Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique), La Condamine

4.4
#2 of 7 in Parks in Monaco
Tour the terraced Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) atop the town's steep hill on a clear day to see a large collection of succulents and cacti. With extensive views over Monaco that can be seen from many vantage points, the garden offers more than botanical attractions. Broken up into smaller gardens, each terrace contains plantings that group similar plants together. Key attractions include the giant flowering succulents--spectacular even when not in flower--a shady area with a pond and waterfall, and the underground "cathedral"--a large, underground cave filled with stalactites and stalagmites. When you visit the garden, wear comfortable shoes, as there are many steep steps. Plan my trip to La Condamine with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • Located on the heights of Monaco, the botanical garden gives us exceptional views over the city, the port, the sea surrounded by countless kinds of plantations and particular kinds of cacti of all shapes and sizes. The place is very well maintained with several benches in small shady corners. The cave offers us a descent of 300 steps with a sense of arrival "at the center of the Earth" for all you will pay 7,20 EUR with access to the small museum. Very decent for Monaco knowing that you can spend half a day comfortable and quiet.
