  • Beautiful well kept garden.There were only a few flowering trees and bushes at this time of the year but it must be really beautiful in the season for azaleas,camelias and rhododendrons,

  • Beautiful garden. I came here instead of paying a whopping 5€ at the botanical gardens near the presidential palace😑. I guess the president is short on money 🧐? Can't speak to what I missed, but I spent over an hour exploring all the caves and various paths in this lush and beautifully preserved park from the mid-1800s. Considering I was unknowingly stuck in the town during the public holiday on October 5, I found this to be a great respite.
  • This garden is so beautiful! It is totally worth the 15 minute walk from our waterfront hotel in Ponta Delgada. There are so many beautiful trees and flowers. It is a great place to have lunch. We bought fruit, bread and cheese from the supermarket right bear the entrance and enjoyed eating on a shady bench. There is also a cafe in the garden too.
  • Beautiful botanical garden with a wide range of vegetation and above all huge ancient trees! The entry is free, there is a lot of shade if you want to escape from the scorching sun and you can get a nice rest on one of the benches. There are multiple entrance points but that said the place is pretty enclosed and thus nicely separated from the city outside.
  • Unfortunately we arrived in a HUGE thunderstorm & the café was closed so we sheltered outside with a few other drenched tourists, gardeners & chickens 🐓🐓. The park itself was a beautiful oasis in Ponta Delgada, even after the deluge we experienced.
  • Wow these Gardens are frankly amazing and we were only lucky enough to find them because of our Whales food tour guide.
