Jardim Botânico da Ajuda

The construction of this Italian style garden was ordered by the Marquês de Pombal, in 1728. It is a space filled with tropical trees, offering peace and quiet. Worthy of notice are the 400 years dragon-tree, from Madeira and the showy XVIII century fountain, decorated with serpents, sea-horses and mythological creatures. It has a huge, imposing terrace filling the inferior part of the garden.
