Formerly a hotel, Monte Palace and its garden were restored and opened to the public in 1989. The garden incorporates a famous collection of ceramic Portuguese tiles, oriental gardens with Koi ponds, and a number of water features. The plant collections include both indigenous and exotic species.

Besides the botanical garden, at Monte Palace you’ll find a unique museum with two distinct areas – one dedicated to contemporary African art, the other to minerals and gems from all over the world.
