EDWARD VII PARK

Lisbon's largest central park



Edward VII Park, Lisbon


Named after Britain's Edward VII, who visited the city in 1903 to reaffirm the Anglo-Portuguese alliance, this is the largest park in central Lisbon.

With neatly clipped box hedging flanked by mosaic patterned walkways, it stretches uphill from Marquês de Pombal Square to a belvedere at the top with fine views.

The big attractions within the park are the two estufas, the hothouse (with the more exotic plants) and the greenhouse ("Estufa Fria") filled with tropical plants, ponds, and endless varieties of palms and cacti.

Opposite the estufas on the eastern side of the park, sits an ornately tiled sports pavillion dedicated to Carlos Lopes, the Portuguese athlete who won the marathon at the Los Angeles Olympic Games, and that doubles as a venue for occasional concerts and cultural events.

Get FREE admission to the greenhouse and ride Lisbon's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
