Tropical Garden

A beautiful eden of tropical plants



Tropical Garden, Lisbon


Lisbon's beautiful tropical garden is a charming yet often overlooked spot that has maintained all the ponds, towering palm trees, and over 4000 species of tropical plants that it had when it was created in 1906.

It is also known as "Jardim do Ultramar," and has rare tropical and subtropical trees and plants (many of them endangered species) from all over the world, such as dragon trees from the Canary and Madeira Islands and monkey puzzle trees from South America. Most of them are labeled, so a visit here can also be a learning experience.

Ride Lisbon's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
