Monserrate (Park and Palace of Monserrate)

The Monserrate palace is a beautiful 19th century estate, blending Portuguese, Arabian and Indian architectural styles.

The estate was bought in 1856 by Francis Cook, an English textile baron, who altered and extended the original neo-Gothic estate, built in 1789. The surrounding park is a wonderful botanical garden with plant species from all over the world.
