You will be able to touch a waterfall, feel the variations in temperature and get to know various botanical species by feeling textures and smelling exotic scents. Around the Palace of Monserrate, you can discover all the materials used in the façades.
To ensure safety in light of Covid-19, a maximum number of participants is set for each session in accordance with the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health.
