Flora Garden

The European-style Flora Garden, situated at the base of Guia Hill parallel to the Avenida Sid-nio Pais. It was formerly the grounds of the Flora Palace, an aristocratic Portuguese mansion. The stone gateway at the entrance was once the palace guardhouse. A straight pedestrian avenue, lined with tall palms and flowering shrubs, leads to the former site of the palace, now occupied by an aviary, a small zoo, and a tree-shaded refreshment patio. The garden also features formal flowerbeds and a stone pathway that winds upward, past small waterfalls and belvederes, to the top of Guia Hill, the highest point in Macao.

An easier route to the top of Guia Hill is via the cable car near the park gate. Visitors can gain a bird's-eye view of the garden and a panoramic perspective of the city.
