Opened in 1884, this lovely greenhouse was commissioned by the Count d'Eu and by the Princess Isabelle to exhibit the regions flowers, other plants and birds. In 1888, the Princess held a historic party where she symbolically freed a few slaves, only some time before she signed a law that formally abolished slavery in Brazil. The palace is loved for its pretty and elegant glass and steel body, its great chandeliers, its two fountains on either side, and its collection of the town’s miniature monuments. It doesn’t function as a greenhouse anymore. Special exhibitions and organised events are held there now. Check the attraction website for details about upcoming events. Temper your expectations though, for there’s not much else to see there.
