Overlooking the Principality, the Jardin Exotique Monaco offers a wide variety of succulent plants in a prestigious setting, as well as the discovery of the Grotte de l'Observatoire, a natural cavity where stalactites and stalagmites give this unique place a magical and surprising aspect.

You will find acclimatized plants originating from several distant dry areas: southwestern United States, Mexico, Central and South America for cacti and agaves; South Africa, Eastern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula for other succulents.

Throughout the year you will see flowers depending on the place of origin of each species: winter for the African Aloe and Crassula, spring and summer for most cacti.

Located on the heights of Monaco, you will discover a magnificent view on the rock with the Palace of the Prince and the Mediterranean Sea.

Guided by specialists, come and observe numerous calcite concretions, highlighted by special lighting.
The cave is currently closed for restructuring work.

Throughout the year, events are programmed: concerts, exhibitions, etc.
