  Lemon trees
by Polly74

Once the residence of the Princes of Monaco, this Palace can be reached through a path bordered with majestic Palm-trees from the Canaries Islands (Palmier des Canaries).
It is a peaceful place in the Renaissance Italian style.
This Palace is now Menton's Modern Art Museum. Its gardens include - among others - a rose-nursery and the largest Citrus-trees collection in Europe with over 400 trees of 50 different species (Lemon trees, Orange-trees, Mandarin-trees, Clementine-trees, Pineapple-trees...).
Among fruit trees you can also find old Palm-trees, Cocculus, Podocarpus, Pinus pinea and sculptures of famous artists and numerous flowers in this wonderful place.
