Entrance to the garden is through Hotel Terra Nostra foyer.
Visit this wonderful botanic garden Terra Nostra and bathe in the fountain of youth. The water is natural volcanic spring mineral water, lots of iron. Don't use a white bathing suit or it will get an oringy colour from the water.

There is really a lot to see in the garden, ferns, azaleas, camellias, magnolias and also endemic plants and then later you can have lunch at the restaurant. Here you can eat the traditional Coseido.

This is something I can recommend for anyone who appreciates beautiful gardens.

Address: Rua Padre José Jacinto Botelho, 5
