Jardim Largo do Infante
Gardens, Parks and Forests
The Largo do Infante Garden is one of the places that you cannot afford to leave out of your visit to Horta. It is extremely popular amongst the local population, particularly on summer nights. One of its greatest attractions is its view over the Marina and out towards the island of Pico.
Along the garden's central path is a sculpture that pays homage to Prince Henry the Navigator, reminding us of his role in the history of the Portuguese Discoveries.
Amongst the species that are to be found in the garden are four magnificent Canary palms, some New Zealand Christmas trees and some tamarisks.
