Winter at Jardim da Tapada das Necessidades

Winter in Lisbon is almost like early spring at home. Right now the aloe vera is blooming like crazy and the meadows are green. Right inside the city there are plenty of gardens to explore with the favorite always being Jardim da Tapada das Necessidades, a walled garden near the Alcantra neighborhood that feels nearly abandoned with crumbly buildings and an incredible domed greenhouse. Enjoy this virtual stroll through the gardens with Ekaterina, a fellow garden-lover, and temporary Lisboeta.

  1. I love the glass greenhouse, Chelsea! This park has been added to my “must see” list in November. Can’t wait! Your photos are beautiful as usual!!
