to Dec 12 | HORTICULTURAL EXHIBIT | Lisbon Gardens: From the Middle Ages to the 21st century | 3€
July 13 @ 10:00 - December 12 @ 18:00€3
Nowadays, no self-respecting big city home, including those of Lisbon, is complete without its own garden (no matter the size). But Lisbon and gardens go way back, and here’s what Museu de Lisboa says about this historical exhibit:
“Between historical and contemporary perspectives, we go back to medieval times to discover vegetable gardens in the heart of the city (Praça da Figueira, Rossio, Martim Moniz). But we also look to the future through the latest techniques at our disposal to build and maintain an urban, resilient and sustainable garden.
Ethnographic research carried out by the Museum of Lisbon brings us the diversity of garden gardens in the city, revealing senses of belonging, practices, narratives, and mutual help networks that reflect different origins and migratory paths.
The way in which the horticultural practice has been appropriating public spaces and the challenges facing the food supply of large cities are also themes addressed in this exhibition, produced by the Lisbon Museum in partnership with the Lisbon City Council.
A ‘library’ of seeds shared by some of the guardians of the existing biodiversity in the municipal horticultural parks of Lisbon closes the exhibition.”
Hours: Tues-Sun, 10h-18h (closed Mondays).
3€ tickets here (or at the door).
Show up until Dec 12 (in theory).
