Parque Terra Nostra inaugurates new Infrastructure and unveils new image


Parque Terra Nostra’s new infrastructure and branding were unveiled on June 1st at an event attended by the President of the Government of the Azores, José Manuel Bolieiro, the Mayor of Povoação, Pedro Melo, and the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Bensaude Group, António Castro Freire. The event concluded with a performance by Tiago Bettencourt in the gardens of Parque Terra Nostra. 

The new changing rooms, ticket office, exhibition space, shop, access points, and scenic night lighting elevate the existing botanical, touristic, architectural, and recreational features of the Garden. Internationally renowned for its Thermal Pool and the preservation of numerous plant species, some of which are endangered, these enhancements further solidify the Garden's status as a premier destination.

With these new infrastructures, the Bensaude Hotels Collection aims to elevate the botanical garden to a world-class standard and establish it as a global reference in botany and environmental conservation. The infrastructures were built in perfect harmony with the Garden and the natural landscape of the 12.5-hectare park, which includes one of the world's most remarkable collections of camellias, with over 800 different specimens, century-old trees, a fern collection, vireya garden, and one of the world’s largest collections of cycads.

Parque Terra Nostra’s new website ( showcases a modern and minimalist design, aligning with the Garden's refreshed image. The site contains a comprehensive botanical library, offering detailed information on the various plant species within Parque Terra Nostra, including their characteristics and natural habitats.
