Gardens of Museu de Lisboa – Palácio Pimenta
The gardens of the Museu de Lisboa – Palácio Pimenta (Museum of Lisbon – Palácio Pimenta) tell stories that go back to the 18th century.
The green spaces are made up of three large areas: an extensive lawn flanked by a path of lilies; a small wood of cypress, cork oaks and eucalyptus; and a classic-style boxwood garden decorated with Bordalo Pinheiro ceramic animals.
There is an important diversity of plant and animal species, making the museum gardens ideal for leisure, learning and knowledge but also a journey to their roots and an encounter with characters who were fundamental to their preservation: Manuel Joaquim Pimenta de Carvalho, one of the former owners and who the palace is named after, the engineer Jorge Graça and the architect Raul Lino.
Campo Grande, 245
