These greenhouses shelter and nurture over 300 varieties of plant but not as single specimens but planted in great drifts along paths down cliff faces and around ponds. Each of the three greenhouses has its own character but the overall sense is of being in a green jungle full of unusual plants. Kew Gardens - eat your heart out

It was our last day in Lisbon and we'd already seen all the big ticket items, so we stopped by the Estufa Fria. It was an okay visit in a tranquil setting. We just wandered around looking at the different plants. The entry price wasn't bad and it would have been free with the Lisbon Card, but we went after... More

Very large botanical garden within three structures. One has a greenhouse roof, another a shaded arrangement, while the cacti are in their own protected space. Two of these being dry on rainy days. Plants are well integrated into stone features and walk-ways at several levels. Keep exploring as there are many hidden little spaces here. In fact I almost missed... More

Estufa Fria consists of three greenhouses built in 1933 as part of the Parque Eduardo Vll. Only one of the greenhouses is actually cold whilst the others house various tropical plants. There are also interesting statues and sculptures. Worth a look.

On a sunny day it is a great place to visit for those interested in plants and nature. You walk through a Parque Eduardo VII up- yes, to yet another miradouro(viewpoint) at the top-but before reaching it (you can go there later) turn left and there you will find a pond beyond which is the entrance to Estufa Fria –cold...

I've been living in Lisbon for more than a year now but it wasn't until this week that I discovered this place, and I love it! Highly recommended for an hour or two of peace and quiet.

A peaceful green oasis in the middle of a busy metropolitan area. A bit hard to find, since it is tucked away behind Edward VII city park. Just find the traffic circle with the statue of Marques Pombal and then head uphill and to the left. For a few euros you will gain access to a series of greenhouses and... More

Estufa fria is like a greenhouse... but in the reverse principle... you make it fresh. Lots of plants everywhere, little caves with benches, and statues and pounds. lovely place to stroll in if you like uncommon nature.
