A living environment and friendly places for the Lisboets who invade them from the first rays of spring, an oasis of freshness and greenery at the heart of the city, the parks and gardens of Lisbon deserve a prominent place in the tourist guides of the city. In Lisbonne, you will not find the sign "Forbidden lawn". The park is designed and lived like a real public space, where people come to celebrate birthdays, play cards with friends, take an aperitif on the terrace of the kiosks, hang out with friends in the evening and dream under the stars.
The Eduardo VII Park, a huge rectangle of greenery at the heart of the city, is a great place to live and meet people, with its large lawns, playgrounds for children and festivals of all kinds - The great book fair is held there once a year. It also shelters the magnificent Estufa fria, a huge greenhouse where plants from all over the world are grown.
The botanical garden of Principe Real is also worth a visit (entrance fee: 2 euros). With its exotic essences and several hundred years old trees , it is a real invitation to travel.
Less well known, the garden of Estrela is also particularly pleasant. If you visit the pretty basilica which is opposite - and who gave it its name - do not miss to go there. You can also discover the new garden of Cerca de Graça, which opened in 2016 at the foot of the church of the same name. A little favorite for Botto Machado, which is located behind the church of Sao Vicente da Fora: the terrace of its kiosk has an extraordinary view on the Tage.
