Located near Bombarral in Portugal Buddha Eden spans for 35 hectares of land and is the largest oriental garden in Europe. This oriental inspired garden as around 2000 stone and terracotta sculptures from the late Gandhare period (6th Century AD).
Owned by a prive wine company this park features tons of sculptures, pagodas, stone lanterns, lakes, trees and bridges to explore in this land of wonder. The oriental park opened in 2007 and uses 6000 tons of marble and granite commissioned from China. In 2012 a Modern and Contemporany sculpture garden was added with pieces from renowned artists such as Alexander Calder, Fernando Botero and Tony Cragg.
I was really impressed by the size of the park, by number and variety of statues, by the cleanness and most of all by the sense of peace, harmony and serenity that transmits to the visitors. One of my favourite features was the mini train that let’s your move through the park with stops at the main interest points.
A must see and only an hour away from Lisbon.
