Estufa Fria

The Estufa Fria (lit. "Cold Greenhouse") is a greenhouse with three distinct gardens located in Eduardo VII Park between the streets Alameda Engenheiro Edgar Cardoso and Alameda Cardeal Cerejeira in Lisbon, Portugal.

Measuring 1.5 hectares (3.7 acres) in area, the Estufa Fria consists of three parts: the original Cold Greenhouse (Estufa Fria), Hot Greenhouse (Estufa Quente), and Sweet Greenhouse (Estufa Doce). The term "cold greenhouse" comes from the original building's lack of mechanical heating; instead, wooden slats regulate sunlight and protect the plants from excessively hot or cold temperatures. The Cold Greenhouse is the largest of the three, measuring about 8,100 square metres (87,000聽sq聽ft) in area. It is home to azalea and camellia species from around the world.
