Lonely Planet review

Bristling with exotic foliage from Portugal’s former colonies, the Jardim Garcia de Orta is named after a 16th-century Portuguese naturalist and pioneer in tropical medicine. Botanical rarities include Madeira’s bird of paradise and serpentine dragon tree. Stroll the Brazilian garden, shaded by bougainvillea, silk-cotton, frangipani and Tabasco pepper trees. There’s also a music garden where kids can bash out melodies on giant triangles and gongs.
