Palácio Pimenta Gardens – Museum of Lisbon

Among peacocks, box hedges and statues

Open on days:

18/19 25/26

10:00 — 18:00

Campo Grande 245

In the middle of the hedges you will also encounter the characteristic silhouette of the Japanese acacia (Sophora japonica var. pendula), its branches cascading towards the ground.

Passing through the Museum of Lisbon building, which forms part of an old palace and recreational grounds dating from the 18th century, you will find the garden of the Palácio Pimenta.

It is divided into three large areas: to the right of a pathway flanked by linden trees, is the great lawn, where male peacocks strut and show off; to the left, a thicket of cypress, cork oak and grevillea. Follow the pathway, passing a pond with classical statues, and you will arrive at the Bordallo Pinheiro garden. Here you will be surprised by giant ceramic animals hiding between the box hedges, fruit of the artist’s bold imagination.
