  • a natural oasis full of plants not seen, recommended to non-fans for a long layover after a hike to the city plan but with drinks, I didn't see any convenience store

  • Mainly an arboretum, with little information about the trees. There is a separate garden area up some steps, which we almost missed due to the appallingly poor signage, but that was disappointing too....  read more »
  • This could be a beautiful space but alas it was very uncared for for. It has the potential to be lovely with great spaces and plants. The butterfly enclosure was closed yet still advertised, bad calli...  read more »
  • This botanical garden is a bit rustic or unkempt, but it is a very delightful way to spend a couple of hours in the heat of the summer. With a 2e entrance fee, and the extensive trails and exotic plants and trees, this is a fine way to stroll through a Lisbon park.
  • I'm embarrassed! I'm from Lisbon and I hadn't visit this place in years. this could be such a beautiful place, it has such beautiful trees but it Looks so run down!! They charge u 2eur to get in but I honestly don't know what they do with that money. The rubbish bins were overflowing, the ponds and water canals with no water, the pathways were full of dead plants. I was shocked at how everything looked so shabby and sad. The lady at the shop must have a problem cause she can't smile and they give u a stupid map at the entrance which helps no one and is totally unnecessary. Keep the map and clean up the place!!!!
  • A little oasis of calm in the frantic city. Finding the entrance was a little tricky - a sign says entrance through the natural history museum - the staff in the museum send you down the street to another entrance..... The arboretum contains a good variety of plants considering the compactness of it. A smaller formal garden called 'The Class' had less to offer. Unfortunately the butterfly house was closed at the time of my visit and 'observatory' building was undergoing refurbishment.
  • It is a nice garden located in a very interesting part of Lisbon, it even has a duck or two. I went on the end of winter, maybe because of that the garden wasn't at its full potential. It was a pity that some parts of garden felt abandon, like the mini lakes. (Costs of maintenance). I will return there on the end of spring / beginner of summer, hopefully it will better.
  • A smallish botanical gardens in the centre of Lisbon, it is full of unusual trees and plants, the bird life is better than most parts of the city. We spent a couple hours wondering about, and couple of euros well spent
