Botanical Gardens of Lisbon

Built on a steep hillside near the heart of Lisbon, the nineteenth century Botanical Gardens are a calm and lush oasis of exotic greenery featuring thousands of subtropical species. Although the gardens are a tad shabby and overgrown, there are many quirky corners, the hard landscaping is tasteful and the atmosphere peaceful. If you have any interest in botany, a visit is well worth the modest entrance fee.
