I last went to the Estufa Fria about 25 years ago when it was slightly tatty but still charming. We took refuge from the heat one afternoon last week and were amazed how much it had been done up. It's one of those secret corners...More

This is Lisbon's botanical garden. The garden is divided into different zones, for different plants. Apparently the thought was to bring in plants from around the world. The garden is the site of a former quarry. It is a pleasant place to stroll around amid...More

Came to the Estufa Fría in two couples; I would say you get exactly what you pay for. Prices to enter are very decent (€3.10 standard, concessions available) and whilst I wouldn't say that what I saw was outstanding, the variety of plants on display...More

Was surprised to find the garden house...The roof looked strange and we decided to go and explore. Small entrance fee for an hour walk tour. Nicely decorated garden with water spots and a hot room with cactus.

Probably unlike any other botanic garden you'll visit - neither outdoor gardens or (for the majority of plants) under glass. Instead you find yourself in a series of large glades with raffia matting, high above you, as protection from the direct sun. There are three...More

This is a lovely greenhouse, built in a hillside, so you can wander through the layers of tropical plants. Calm, cool retreat from the city, in the heart of the city. I would highly recommend it for plant lovers, botanic garden fans, or for anyone...More

A lovely place to wander for an hour or so. All plants and shrubs are named and labelled. There is a lake with many wild birds and terrapins. Small café with pizzas, salads and gazpacho. Just avoid the red wine!!

Truly excellent and worth an hour or so to wander round, this garden is unconventional of any other botanical garden that I can recall as it is built in the grounds of an old quarry so it is vast once inside. No glass anywhere !...More

We really enjoyed Estufa Fria. There are a series of large green houses (with 'open' roof, it will make sense when you visit and you see it!) that are extremely well kept. There are a large variety of trees and plants in the different climate...More
