Eduardo VII Park



Filling a surface of 26 hectares, the Eduardo VII Park is the largest public park in Lisbon. The venue neighbors on Praca do Marques de Pombal and, southwards, on Avenida da Liberdade. The park was initially called the Liberty Park, but as from 1903, when the king of England visited Portugal in order to reinforce the diplomatic relations between the two countries, it has been bearing the name of the king. The garden is located on a fairly high ground, which is why visitors come here often so they can admire the city of Lisbon (or parts of it, anyway). On top of that, given the generous spread of the park, it is often used to cultural and entertainment purposes (fairs, concerts, exhibitions).

The most popular attractions of the park refer to the three greenhouses, that is, on the one hand, the two “estufas” (hothouses) where exotic plants and, respectively, cacti grow, and, on the other hand, the so-called “estufa fria” (the cold greenhouse) where species from cold climates are grown (this greenhouse can be visited for free by Lisbon Card holders). The greenhouses were built somewhere in the 1930s. But the greenhouses aside, there’s also a sports pavilion called the “Carlos Lopes Pavilion” in the honor of the great national athlete. Thus, visitors can delight in exploring the rich vegetal and artistic patrimony of the park (statues are scattered in sundry areas of the venue), as well as they can search out the sports and leisure infrastructure in order to find out the pastime which suits best their tastes.
