Jardin Exotique de Monaco, La Condamine

#2 of 7 in Parks in Monaco
Tour the terraced Jardin Exotique de Monaco atop the town's steep hill on a clear day to see a large collection of succulents and cacti. With extensive views over Monaco that can be seen from many vantage points, the garden offers more than botanical attractions. Broken up into smaller gardens, each terrace contains plantings that group similar plants together. Key attractions include the giant flowering succulents--spectacular even when not in flower--a shady area with a pond and waterfall, and the underground "cathedral"--a large, underground cave filled with stalactites and stalagmites. When you visit the garden, wear comfortable shoes, as there are many steep steps. Plan my trip to La Condamine with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

  • I thought I was being dragged to another garden, but this place is amazing! The plants, succulents and cacti here are fabulous and the views of the city are to die for! The size of these plants is.....  more »
  • Jardin Exotique is a wonderful place to stroll enjoying the botanical garden along the cliff. Mostly the plants are cacti and other succulent plants from around the world.  more »
  • Highly recommend this garden. Really different and lovely to wander through. Would have Given it a 5 rating but for disinterested staff and it’s a bit tricky to navigate as there are no directions. Best if u head to the right on entry and work your way down via the pathways (not the steps). Then when u reach the bottom you come on up the left side.
  • A breathtaking garden and you can see some amazing views from there! I’ve never been this excited about cactuses in my life. Also, you can visit a cool cave that goes inside the mountain.
