Lovely history, beautiful specimens, very cosy and not too overwhelming, brilliantly priced. Ate at the cafe and was very happy with the food and the service.

Located on a steep hill and practically invisible among other fenced houses, resulting in many tourists inability to quickly locate it. Hidden in the hills of town, it is better to get to this gem by taxi, which are surprisingly cheap there. The entrance ticket...More

After one failed attempt to locate the orchid gardens (of the Sitio Litre) we stumbled upon it one morning. It was a hot day and the small, but lovely little oasis is just what we needed to pause and contemplate in comparative calm. It was...More

At 4,75€ it was a bit pricey for the size of the garden but there is a cafe and quite a bit of history to learn about the garden and the mansion. The orchids were beautiful but there was also a 600 year old dragon...More

It takes a hill and some steps to reach the orchid garden, from the main tourist area. Lovely pond with koi carp as you enter. Not a huge place. Was a little disappointed that the orchids, although nice, were all in pots. Expected them to...More

During our stay, we visited a few gardens. This was the most expensive (just under €5 pp) and by far the smallest. The gardens are nice enough (several potted orchids, carp pond, an impressive draco tree), but, given the choice, you'd be better off visiting...More

Its a really nice garden with lots of orchids. A little bit hidden and not that easy to find and the Entry with 4,75 Euro is a bit strange... and high.

The historical splendour, colour and beauty of the mansion and gardens of Sitio Litre are simply breathtaking and a must to visit especially for those of you who enjoy and appreciate the design and creativity of special gardens, of which these are. The colonial style...More
