Botanical Garden

the green heart of Príncipe Real

Have you ever imagined visiting 5 continents in just one place? A little bit of flora from all around the world is portrayed in the 4.2 hectares that comprise this green space. This national monument is also one of the lungs of the city of Lisbon, whose role is to house not just species from around the world, but also endangered species.

Inaugurated in 1878, this garden is part of the National Museum of Natural History and Science University of Lisbon.

When strolling through here, your experience will always be different according to the season: in the winter you'll find trees, flowers and a very different type of flora than that of spring; in the summer you'll find a refreshing retreat that reflects, on its ponds, the sound of ideal freshness on a very hot day.

In the spring, a visit to the butterfly garden is essential, in order to get to know all the species of butterflies that exist in Portugal – an experience that can’t be missed!

On Saturdays and Sundays there are guided tours, some of which are dramatized.
