...Jardim Botanico

Big palms at the entrance


Saturday 23 November

The Jardim Botanico was first started in 1808 and is still there now. Its a bit of an oasis away from the bustle of the town. The huge old palm trees lining the entrance are magnificent and the orchid garden and carniverous plants section are well worth a peek. Check out the pics as theres not much to write!
