Photographer's Note

I thought I will use the name of this place as a title. You see here exactly what it says. The building on the left is the palace in the town of Monte. The place is more popular due to the tropical garden rather than the palace. It is a very attractive garden arranged on a relatively steep hill. Monte is located just uphill from Funchal, the main town on Madeira and it is often covered in clouds. When we arrived there it was raining. It added an incredible ambiance to the place. It felt like a proper rain forest. Unfortunately the rain didn't help in taking photos. We continued our walk in spite of the rain but we decided to skip the visit to the beautiful church next to the garden which has a lovely architecture and a stunning view from its terrace. The weather was getting worse. In spite of the rubbish weather we did our best to have fun. On that day we arranged a Spa treatment for my wife and daughter, which they enjoyed very much.

I see two photos uploaded by me on the same TrekEarth page. They are separated by 13 photos only. I don't think I have seen so few people active on the site before...
