What people say

"José do Canto was a wealthy Azorean who loved plants. He bought, sold, and exchanged plants with gardens around the world. In the mid-19th century, he started turning his garden into a Victorian-style park. It grew to nearly 15 acres and more than 3,000 species. That park is now the Jardim Botânico José do Canto. It features winding trails, a Neo-Gothic chapel, a beautiful rose garden, and fascinating plants. Be sure to tear yourself away from the waterfront to wander through this peaceful garden."
