    What a gem
    This was the highlight of Lisbon for our 5-year-old. Many winding paths, hidden caves, ponds and stepping stones to be explored among beautiful plants. Great fun for young and old alike.

    A Hidden Gem
    A hidden gem! Our Receptionist at hotel recommended this to us. We nearly didn't find it, but oh I'm so glad we did. Yes it is up and down little steps within this hidden oasis or quiet and calm (Apart from the planes overhead!!) The flora and fauna was really well done. I would compare to our Eden Project, in Cornwall.

    Lovely time
    We loved wandering around the different greenhouses. I really enjoyed that you could climb up to different levels and see it from a different perspective. I think it was 3 euros per person which I thought was well worth it. We visited mid-week in June and it was really quiet! It felt really peaceful despite being in the centre of the city.

There are 3 large greenhouses here to see, and all are interconnected. At the entrance, you can pay cash to the attendant to enter or use the kiosk to purchase your entry tickets. There is a free app that can be downloaded , but I could not find a map with it to assist in navigating the grounds. The place is built into a former quarry so there are lots of stairs and many winding paths. The variety of plants was nice but because of the difficulty in getting around (inclines), the gardens are not for everyone.

Estuda fria (Cold Greenhouse) is a beautiful garden worth the visit. It is composed by the bigger cold greenhouse and a "sweet greenhouse" and a "hot greenhouse". Beside the plans you can see a lot of birds, ponds with fish and tortoises. Entrance is cheap but on Sundays mornings is free. Easy to park and to get there by public transport. Good visit for families.

This botanical garden was amazing and by far better than the Tropical Botanical gardens in Belem. It had a “cold greenhouse” which is a new experience to us. It was awesome and inspiring and relaxing all at once. We visited late one Sunday afternoon. It contained all your usual houseplants, but growing voraciously outdoors! Tree ferns, maidenhair ferns, monsteras, rubber plants. The paths are windy and uneven but this adds to the experience. A must see if you are visiting Lisbon and like plants!

Small botanic lush tropical garden centrally located off the park. Good afternoon side trip. Inexpensive experience. Recommend at least 30min for viewing. I bet it is very lovely when the plants are in bloom. Very few blooming plants in October.

We were here for a wedding. The venue was lovely and so much to see.
You can get lost in the maze so keep an eye out for the signs.
Wear comfortable flat shoes as there is a lot of walking and the surfaces are not all flat and easy to walk on.
For the wedding there was only 1 disabled toilet on the ground floor. Everyone else had to go up the stairs.
It was lovely to hear peacocks and see lots of birds around in the greenery.
Its a botanical venue - the uk version would be Kew Gardens

This was a brilliant, accidental find in the middle of Lisbon.
Such good value for money, the gardens inside are breathtaking. A plant lovers’ paradise!
There are so many levels to explore, and plenty of places to stop and admire the plants.

One of the best, if not THE BEST, botanic garden’s you’ll ever see. Saw the amazing roof from Parque EduardoVII and had to investigate further. So glad we did. Amazing, jaw-dropping, outstanding. Should be at the top of everyone’s “to see” list in Lisbon.

Several colleagues and I took a 90 minute detour to Estufa Fria while on a business trip to Lisbon. We enjoyed walking through the indoor gardens, seeing flowers, greens, and many cactuses. Although the experience was nice, I wouldn't rate it as the best of the trip. Make sure you can handle steep inclines and steps. It was cash only to enter (3 Euros each).
