the green heart of the city

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

An amazing park that could be great to spend an afternoon or go for a run, in the middle of the city. But most of it looks abandoned, really bad maintenance and you are not allowed to access most of it. What's the point of having such an amazing inside a city if you don't take care of it and...

Regardless of the maintenance, this garden had so much peace and calmness to offer. It is a lovely place to spend the day walking and discovering the trees. My favorite part was taking a picture under an aging tree and the bamboo garden deep in the jardim

The place is not very well kept, but it is still a good way to spend a few hours resting, relaxing under the trees and walking around with a friend. It is free.
