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

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

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 calling. It looks neglected and unwanted. As an avid gardener...More

We may have gone at the wrong time of year, September, but there was only trees to see and hardly any flowers. Entrance was only 2 euros each so didn't feel too cheated.

Space is great, with so many interesting plants, treas etc. Only bad thing is that you can see that it is not maintained well. Even though this is the case, you shouldn't skip it, take a look and make your own thoughts about it. It...More

Of huge historic interest but sadly lacking in maintenance. No logical routing and the signing could be better. Many specimens outgrown their interest. Many benches broken.
