Get to know the 2,500 species of plants found among lakes, waterfalls, and ruins at Parque de Monserrate, a beautiful palace and garden that counts the likes of Lord Byron among its visitors. Masters gardeners and botanists designed the lawns, which bloom with Portuguese native plants as well as flora from five continents. Cork oak trees and holly trees provide shade to visitors strolling the pathways. Do not miss the palace either--one of the finest Romantic structures in Portugal.
