Parque Eduardo VII

sights / Parks & gardens

Lonely Planet review

An urban oasis with British roots, Parque Eduardo VII is named after his highness Edward VII, who visited Lisbon in 1903. The sloping parterre affords sweeping views over the whizzing traffic of Praça Marquês de Pombal to the river. The estufas are a highlight, with lush foliage and tinkling fountains.

Look out for tree ferns and camellias in the estufa fría (cool greenhouse) and coffee and mango trees in the estufa quente (hot greenhouse).
