This issue celebrates the 250th anniversary of Ajuda Botanical Garden in Lisbon.

The Ajuda Botanical Garden enjoys the reputation of being the oldest botanical garden in Portugal. It was originally founded as part of the domain of the Ajuda National Palace, by title of Royal Botanical Garden. The construction works started in the mid 18th century, more exactly, in 1755, but the official date of the inauguration remains 1768.

Initially, the floral asset of the garden amounted to some 5,000 species, but the patrimony was heavily damaged in 1808, during the Napoleonic invasion, when the French deprived the venue from some 1,500 species, which they took to Paris on their way back to France. br>
The garden houses a 400 years old tree (of the Dracaena draco species), colorful flowerbeds and, apart from the floral asset, there’s also a magnificent 18th century Baroque fountain lushly decorated with marine motifs: mythical sea monsters, fish, seahorses and serpents. The fact the garden offers views to the Tagus River, to the 25 de Abril Bridge and while facing from a distance the National Sanctuary of Christ the King in the neighboring Almada, as well as the fact peacocks stroll around in the garden without fear from the human presence, all these add to the typical charm of the place.
