An outside botanical garden with well-established large trees and plants from many semi-tropical areas. The entrance is at the top of the hill; don't plan on walking up there from the main drag (Ave. Da libertad) unless you are a mountain goat. Since it is...More

Not much to see. We thought after it was closed for several month for renovation that it would be interessting visiting. But no, it was very poor. Maybe it's because we're now beginning the spring and there are not much flowers grown yet, but in...More

We were informed the garden is closed for 6 months for restoration/ renovation which was very disappointing after the somewhat tiring walk to get there. Likely helpful to check to see if it's open before making the trek.

I loved my time strolling the grounds of this garden, it provided me with beautiful photos that capture the stillness. Perfect haven from the hustle and bustle of down town

It is more like a city park then like a botanical garden. There is nothing special there to pay for, it should be free and open to the public. If 2 don't have too much time in Lisbon, than 2 should better go to the...More

Not that impressive an area. Has a lot of tropical trees but not any particular area offering any interesting landscaping. :Lack of maintenance. You could spend an hour strolling but would probably enjoy a local park area more without having to pay 2 euros for...More

On our first day in Lisbon, we were excited to visit the Botanical Gardens and took the funicular from Restauradores up the tall hill and ventured around asking directions until we found the site. There was a small sign on the locked gate saying it...More

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. Yes, we visited in September, so didn't expect to see lots of...More
