Jardim Sena Freitas
Gardens, Parks and Forests
Situated in the centre of Ponta Delgada, the Jardim Sena Freitas is a highly popular place both for resting for a few moments and for enjoying a brief stroll amongst the brightly-coloured flower beds.
Around the garden are some interesting old palaces such as the Palácio do Marquês da Praia, the Solar dos Medeiros e Albuquerque and the Palácio da Conceição, the home of the Azores Regional Government. Amongst the various plant species in this botanical garden are a horse chestnut, Canary palms, a weeping willow, a tulip poplar, a robinia, a New Zealand Christmas tree, sabadillas and a Judas tree.
