Buddha Eden Garden, or Jardim de Paz (Garden of Peace) is a landscaped park of about 35 hectares around Quinta dos Loridos designed as a response to the Taliban’s barbaric destruction of the Giant Bamyan Buddhas in central Afganistan.  Next to enjoying the tranquility of the oriental gardens, you can also taste wine of Quinta dos Loridos or observe the harvest of the bark from the cork oak trees.

The Buddha Eden garden can be found on the way to Bombarral. Bombarral is located about 65 km north of Lisbon, easily accessible via A8, in the middle of rich agricultural area – pear, vineyards and cork trees define the landscape of Bombarral and Cadaval.

Carvalhal village is a place to visit on your way to/from Bombarral. The narrow street and alleyways paved in old stonework invite to stroll through this picturesque village of traditional architecture, resembling the one of Obidos. 

How to get there from Obidos: from Obidos, follow N road to Bombarral through Paul and follow directions to Buddha Eden.
