Jardim Botanico, Coimbra
(3.4/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Fueled by the rise of Portugal's seafaring empire, Jardim Botanico features a wealth of plant species from exotic reaches of the globe. Pay a visit to the garden, operated by the University of Coimbra, and explore the 13 hectares (32 acres) of green space via its network of pathways, trails, and courtyards. You'll pass through different themed areas ranging from ordinary woods to the lime grove, tropical section, greenhouses, and more. Admire the riotous array of flora that began to arrive in Portugal from distant lands during overseas exploration in the 15th century, culminating in the garden's foundation in 1772. You can take a guided tour to learn more about the history and varieties of plants in the garden, but you must make arrangements in advance. Use our Coimbra holiday planner to add Jardim Botanico and other attractions to your Coimbra vacation plans.
