“What once must have been splendid”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Whilst i Belem we toured the Jardim Botanico Tropical, shame this seemed so run down and sorely in need of attention. However at only 2 euros and 1 euro for our senior it may be better earlier in the summer when there maybe some flowering shrubs to add colour. Look our for the African Heads adorning gate columns, no explanation for these which intrigued us.

We took a map but were unable to locate the shop or toilet facilities so cannot comment on these.

“A little oasis in Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

Lisbon’s Jardim Botânico is a small oasis and especially on warm days offers the perfect opportunity to get away from the heat and to enjoy the shade of this beautiful park. It is located in the Principe Real area so it is within walking distance from the main tourist attractions. I can definitely advise anyone that visits Lisbon to go here, because it is unlike any botanical garden I have ever seen.

“Visit to the Botanical Gardens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

A real haven of tranquillity and excellent value. Has a wonderful plant collection and we were able to buy some interesting plants - such as a small Dragon Tree. Normally they don't sell plants but had a recent show which these were left over from. The cafeteria was a very welcome sight after walking round the grounds and good value too. The staff were also very knowledgeable and pleasant.
