Estufa Fria Lisbon – Jungle in the city!

"Estufa Fria" in Lisbon means 'cold greenhouse' but it actually has three greenhouses. It's full of plants - and is very cool to walk around in...

This place is a botanical garden in a huge greenhouse located at Parque Eduardo VII. Although the name is "Estufa Fria" (= cold greenhouse), they actually have 3 spaces: the biggest cold greenhouse, the hot greenhouse and the "sweet" greenhouse.

It is full of plants - from the most ordinary to the most exotics ones - and is a very cool place to walk around, relax and see beautiful things. They have a couple of ponds, sculptures and nice small trails to follow. It is really a place to breathe in fresh air in the middle of the city.

In the summer, you may also find concerts and events there and the vibe is pretty cool. Imagine going to a jazz concert in a completely green and peaceful place - amazing.

Tip: if you're a student, the ticket will cost only €1,55. And better yet: if you go on a Sunday before 2pm, it's free :P

Don't miss this one!
