Beautiful old park

So many plants in bloom it was very beautiful. Kind of confusing finding my way out. There is an activity park in the tree tops that looks like lots of fun.

Coming from Lisbon, the refreshing greenery of the botanical garden made me instantly like this city.

Atmosphere is just great. You can check lots of scientific names of plants and trees. Garden and stairs are beautiful.

I typically go to the botanical garden in any city I visit that has one. This one was pretty, but nothing exceptional. If you venture over to that side of Coimbra, stop in, but wouldn't suggest going out of your way.

A nice place to stop while visiting the University Unesco site or after a day walking around in the city. The down side is it closes quite early in the day.

My husband and I got to the botanical garden through a gate next to the university and wondered to cross the park and get to the avenue near to Mondego river, however the gates were closed and we had to take a long ride to get back to the entrance.

Lovely garden with some beautiful features - sunken garden, some magnificent old trees, gorgeous linden avenue, ponds, but fairly large portion is closed and not upkept. Lovely way to walk down the hill from university.

If you like old established unusual and rare trees and plants then this is well worth an hour or two of your time. If you like peace and tranquillity then you could find it here too. This isn't Kew Gardens but it does have some amazing old trees and whilst the gardens may not be in perfect condition, it is... More
