  • It was first the private garden of a famous botanist who bought plants back from his travels. He wanted to turn the Azores into gardens, and exotic gardens at that. They did well in this climate and s...  more »
  • This is a great little gem in the urban area. As you walk in, it looks tiny, but since it's kind of sunken in, and there's so much greenery as soon as you're in you leave the world behind! There's som...  more »

  • Gorgeous place! My family enjoyed walking around and checking out the caves. Manageable walk for even the littlest people, though not everything is stroller/handicapped accessible
  • Wide winding paths. Pleasant, quiet atmosphere. One very large and awesome tree. Several grottos to explore. A tranquil pond as well. Very nice overall
  • A gorgeous garden, a child's flashlight tag fever dream and — with all the railing-less steps — probably also a parent's nightmare. Definitely worth the walk up from town, if not for the lovely rock formations than for the impressive botanical collection. Across the street from the local high school, so you will be sharing with teenagers, depending on the time of day.
  • Jardim António Borges is a great place to explore. There's a lot of variety of trees and bushes, and there are even some animals like ducks, chickens and cats. It has a small park for children to play on swings and slides and a snack-bar. At noon students from Escola Secundária Domigos Rebelo usually come to Jardim António Borges, and it can become a bit crowded. Overall I enjoy spending time on this garden.
  • Beautiful place for a nice walk, lots of pictures and a basic lunch. Explore the caves and crevices and sit under the huge rubber tree.
