Ajuda Garden tour

*** FULL. Waiting list only***

Participants need to bring along a bus ticket to use to transport from Belem to Ajuda garden.

Please contact Bev for more details. 

You have probably heard all about Belém, from being the land holding one of the most iconic buildings ever built in Portugal – the Jerónimos Monastery – to the famous and original custard tarts. But have you ever heard about Ajuda? And better yet, have you heard about Ajuda’s gardens and about their relevance regarding botanical investigation and education?

If not, then come and join us on a 2 hour tour through some of the most interesting gardens in Lisbon and get to learn more about their history, as well as seeing the beautiful landscapes they have to offer

This is the oldest botanical garden in the country, laid out on two levels in 1768 as part of Ajuda Palace

Ajuda Botanical Garden, Lisbon

Its collection of plants grew to reach around 5000 species, but in 1808 the Napoleonic invaders took more than 1500 specimens to Paris. 

Despite this loss, today there are still plants from several of Portugal’s former colonies, some centuries-old trees, and is still an elegant place, with statues and a marvelous Baroque fountain decorated with serpents, fish, sea horses, and mythical creatures. There are also some grand views over Belem, the Tagus River and the 25 de Abril Bridge

Transportation  – train to Belem or bus 

 Lunch will follow at a nearby restaurant. Everyone pays their own. Please advise if you intend to stay on for lunch.

 Limit 15 members  .

Please sign up with Bev: by Sept 12th, 2019
