This is the oldest botanical garden in the country, which lost many specimens to Napoleon's invasion in the 1800s. Great views of Belem.

If you have visited the NHM in London then you will be truly disappointed with this one there is no comparison. Half the rooms were empty, very few of the exibits had English descriptions and it was all a bit haphazard.

This museum is just simply amazing. I hardly recommend to everybody who loves dinosaurus, nature and science!

The garden as such is ok, but in none of the ponds was water and the butterfly garden was closed. I wouldn't go there again.

(Botanical gardens only) There are very few labels for the trees so my quest to find out about some of the weirdly wonderful trees in Lisbon was in vain. The 'butterfly house' is a rickety enclosure with dead plants and only two types of butterfly...More
