Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique), La Condamine

(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Exotic Garden (Jardin Exotique) represents just the start of the adventure when you use our La Condamine holiday planner to plot your vacation.

  • Opened in 1933, during this time has been enriched by many exotic plants, mostly Cacti, agaves and cacti with hundreds of other plants, imported from Mexico, Central and South America, from Africa. Were chosen in such a way that there are blooms throughout the year in order to cover the span of 365 days in the garden there is a cave (the "Observatory cave") with several stalactites and stalagmites, destination for many speleologists. The views from the EXOTIC GARDEN is priceless. Seems to be on the edge of a steep cliff. Well worth a visit.

  • Nice garden with lots of cactus on top of a hill. Because it is a steep place you will have to climb. There are interesting caves and a small museum, but were closed when we visited. There are wonderful views of Monaco.
  • Very nice garden. Too hot the day we visited and the garden format required us to walk the entire garden which was too long.
  • You must visit the cave, this is a very interesting experience. Don't expect much in terms of service, energy from the staff or a decent cafe, I would love to say there was a fantastic spot to have a fantastic coffee and admire the view. But I can't. There isn't. However the view really is spectacular - much like the views above Dubrovnik.
  • Nice garden, great views and the tour through the cave was great too!
  • Absolutely stunning views of Monaco, the cacti garden is magnificent. Must do!!!
