We were told this garden was not as good as that of the governor's residence next door. Wrong. It was far better! Magnificent mature trees including the grandfather of all rubber plants, lots of places to sit and chill and varying (but uniformly huge) bamboos. The formal garden by the palace was a bit disappointing - the Portuguese seem to abandon flower beds at the end of the season but that was all which stopped it being excellent. Right in the front road-side corner we found an open door which we thought might lead to a loo. Instead, it led to the robing room for a small chapel and, with nothing to suggest this was permitted, a curtained opening then gave access to the interior of the chapel itself. Lovely and completely unexpected.
