This house hosts the Tropical Garden Monte Palace, where you will find exotic lush vegetation with plants from all over the world. Among its outstanding species, the highlighted ones are the azalea, the heathers, and different trees, in addition to a great variety of ferns. The garden has a wide collection of cicas (encephalartos) which are considered living fossils.

The garden also counts with an area dedicated to the Madeiran flora, where you can admire most of the varieties of Laurisilva de Macaronesia, in addition to other endangered species, as the Pittosporum Coriaceum, popularly known as the “azarero” of Madeira.

Inside of the garden stands the Monte Palace Museum, which hosts two permanent collections, one of minerals coming from Brazil, Peru, North America and Portugal; and another one of sculptures from Zimbabwe. Its sculptural pieces date from the 50s and 60s and include art pieces made by artists from Tengenenge such as Henry Munyaradzi and Bernard Matemera.
