I’m so glad I went to Monserrate Palace today (and you’ll be happy to learn I wasn’t an idiot and took the bus!). The gardens surrounding the palace are lovely and peaceful. The history is long and convoluted and ownership of the property has changed numerous times over the centuries. Building of the current structure began around 1860. I’d like to simply share with you the beauty of this place.
I felt lucky that I stumbled upon this old chapel. This is not what most people come to Monserrate to see. But, strolling around the gardens, there it was.
I watched this little cat for a while as it prepared to pounce on I don’t know what!
Some of the flowers I found in the gardens.
