The garden is not very well maintained. There is a big potential in there but the money is simply missing. The admission is very low and I'm surprised that they don't make it more expensive and don't invest the money in the renovation.

A bit run-down but retains its charm. Lovely and peaceful spot to get away from it all in busy Belem and very cheap to enter. If you are organised you will bring a picnic from one of the sandwich shops on the main road. Make...More
