On a sunny day it is a great place to visit for those interested in plants and nature. You walk through a Parque Eduardo VII up- yes, to yet another miradouro(viewpoint) at the top-but before reaching it (you can go there later) turn left and there you will find a pond beyond which is the entrance to Estufa Fria –cold... 更多
I've been living in Lisbon for more than a year now but it wasn't until this week that I discovered this place, and I love it! Highly recommended for an hour or two of peace and quiet.
A peaceful green oasis in the middle of a busy metropolitan area. A bit hard to find, since it is tucked away behind Edward VII city park. Just find the traffic circle with the statue of Marques Pombal and then head uphill and to the left. For a few euros you will gain access to a series of greenhouses and... 更多
Estufa fria is like a greenhouse... but in the reverse principle... you make it fresh. Lots of plants everywhere, little caves with benches, and statues and pounds. lovely place to stroll in if you like uncommon nature.
“Estufa Fria” (cold greenhouse) is not only one greenhouse, but three different ones, that occupy about one and a half hectare on a former quarry. It is big like an inside park covered from above and from all sides. The place is very well kept and clean. Many stones from the former quarry are used for stairs, waterfalls and small... 更多
In Lisbon for 4 days of conferences, tired, out of sorts, needing a retreat, not much time... where to go? Estufa Fria was a 7 min Uber/taxi ride from the hotel. The gardens were lovely, lush and green in November, with a few red and yellow flowers. They are in a basalt quarry that was abandoned because of water, but... 更多
If you want a unique experience that is mostly overlooked by the guidebooks this could be a great place for you. The old quarry walls are steep and cross-stitched by paths at various elevations so that you could walk from one end of the gardens to the other several times without repeating the views. Sometimes the walls are completely covered... 更多
Beautiful established gardens. A bit of a 'blast from the past' - my husband had been there when he was a child and says it has barely changed. When we went - on a Thursday morning - it was almost deserted with only a handful of visitors. It was a quiet and relaxing experience, and the plants are beautiful and... 更多
Fantastic collection of plants in a unique setting of an old quarry. The collection is in 3 areas. The first is an open air but covered and unheated with plants from around the Mediterranean, the second area is heated during the winter with more tender plants and the third area is cacti and succulents, this latter area needs a bit... 更多
We stayed at the Four Seasons and it was just around the corner from this botanical gem so we thought we would visit during some of our Lisbon exploration downtime and I am so glad we did. There are 3 sections with paths wandering among the plantings and water gardens. I was stunned it wasn't more crowed as it really... 更多
