What a find quite steep but well worth the effort! A vast selection of plants and garden architecture to enjoy until you reach Monte Palace with it's serene lake and wonderful sea view. Take your time to enjoy these wonderful gardens.

Quirky and fun. Would be a wonderful visit on a hot day as very shady. Needs a full days visit. We were there for over 6 hours.

Really nice garden, a lot of plants and water. Feel the harmony. But more expensive than 3 years ago.

These gardens are quite stunning. They are set on a hill and some of the paths are steep. However the colours and smells are gorgeous and there are interesting features...oriental gardens, fountains and winding pathways.
