This was a welcome surprise at the top of the mountain after the funicular ride. Despite the weather there were many tropical and subtropical trees, bushes, and flowers.

If your a gardener you will be in your element in this place. Not as many plants in bloom as was expected but I guess the time of year had something to do with it. Take a pad and pencil to take notes of the...More
