Lisbon’s main botanical garden has over 10,000 plants (including many exotic species from around the world) and is quite large (covering 10 acres, or 4 hectares), but you wouldn’t know it from outside. It’s accessed through a gate on one of the busiest streets of the Príncipe Real district and is almost invisible until you reach the ticket office. It’s a great place to relax, read or take a walk.
Admission: 3€. Free on Sunday morning.
