Jardim dos Serviços Florestais de São Roque
Gardens, Parks and Forests
The Jardim da República in Horta is a pleasant leisure area with wide avenues and grassed parterres, a small romantic lake edged with lava stones and a bandstand where concerts and other performances take place.
Here you can discover the most important species such as araucaria (candelabra), ginkgo, ash, elm, oak, magnolia and kapok (cotton-silk) trees.
Close to the garden are some important examples of the city's most distinctive architecture, with buildings such as the Sociedade Amor da Pátria, the Coronel Silva Leal Primary School and the Império dos Nobres.
