Built on the cliff side, the Jardin Exotique in Monaco offers a breathtaking view of the Principality where you’ll discover succulents with extravagant forms – most of which are in the cactus family.
NOT TO BE MISSED: JARDIN EXOTIQUE IN MONACO
A breathtaking panoramic view of the Principality of Monaco.
Opened in 1933 and boldly landscaped on the cliff side, the Jardin Exotique, with an area of approximately 15,000 m², includes a thousand species of cacti and other succulent plants some of which reach gigantic heights. The Jardin Exotique is the realm of an exuberant, unusual and surrealist nature. Take the time to admire the exceptional panoramic view of the Principality and the French and Italian Côte d’Azur.
LA GROTTE DE L’OBSERVATOIRE
A few meters from the Jardin Exotique is the Grotte de l’Observatoire.
This prehistoric cave is 60 meters underground, and will amaze you by the huge spaces decorated with stalactites, stalagmites and the most surprising concretions – all set off by the special lighting. In the middle of the tour you will be amazed to learn from the guide that you are below sea level. For information there are about 300 steps to climb.
