The Municipal Nurseries of Pimenteira Farm are located in the middle of Monsanto Forest Park. These nurseries, managed by Lisbon City Council’s Department for the Environment, Green Spaces, Climate and Energy, are where many of the plants found in the gardens and parks of the city are grown and looked after.

Occupying an area of 59,000 m2, of which 17,750 m2 are dedicated to the production/care of plants in nurseries, this is where potted plants are treated according to their needs in terms of light, humidity and nutrients. More difficult species (or species that are less well adapted to this region) are cultivated in dedicated shelters or greenhouses, where they can be kept in controlled conditions, allowing them to be maintained in their best state or regain their vigour after being used outside for different events.

You will be able to visit the various greenhouses, each dedicated to a specific group of plants, including the palm house, which resembles a small, dense tropical jungle, and the orchid house, home to the Venus slipper orchid (Paphiopedilum sp.) often used as cut flowers in council events.
