Overview

Created in the 1960s by the landscape architects Telles and Barreto, the garden attracts thousands of visitors annually. Join them and search out a quiet corner amidst the dense vegetation or find a seat in the amphitheater overlooking the pond. Any of these spots is a perfect place to sit and enjoy the many cultural events which take place in the garden day and night. Before the Calouste Gulbenkian foundation acquired the space in 1957, the land was home to Lisbon's first Zoological Garden.
