Terra Nostra Botanical Garden Pictures

Pictures of Botanical Garden on the Azores Island of San Miguel

By

Terra Nostra isn't your typical botanical garden. Yes, Terra Nostra aims to preserve typical plant species like other botanical gardens, but it also preserves a bit of the slow-pace of the Island lifestyle as well.

You can stay at the Terra Nostra Garden Hotel (check prices), an art deco hotel with excellent restaurant in a garden setting, wander out the back door after lunching on a typical volcanic-steam-vent-cooked cozida and walk right into the garden--for a walk among the natural wonders you see in these pictures, or for a dip in the hot springs fed pool to heal what ails you.

What a life! If your idea of the perfect vacation is relaxing in a beautiful environment, this may be the place.
