Jardim do Ultramar information
Far from the madding crowd, Jardim do Ultramar bristles with 4000 species from date palms to monkey puzzle trees. It’s a peaceful, shady retreat on a sweltering summer’s day. A highlight is the Macau garden complete with mini pagoda, where bamboo rustles and a cool stream trickles. Tots love to clamber over the gnarled roots of a banyan tree and spot the waddling ducks and geese.
