A hidden park full of surprises!My suggestionsI once discovered this little park as I used to jog and was going through a phase when I was exploring more and more places.12-10-2015 23:50 i have been here in August 2015
Just behind my house, I once dared to walk in and was amazed by its dimension. There are many routes to enjoy from the entrance but once you are far inside the park you will notice that you can no longer hear the passing cars or any other everyday city noises.
Ever had the feeling to be standing at the top of the world, with a treasure at your feet?My suggestionsParque Eduardo VII, named after King Edward the VII of England after he paid visit to Lisbon to re-entice good relationships to the country, was previously called Parque da Liberdade, or Park of Liberty.12-10-2015 15:46 i have been here in August 2015
I do many tours of Lisbon for friends and visitors and always find it amazing to start here. At the top, a huge flag of Portugal gives birth to one of the most beautiful parks of Lisbon. Looking down, one might see the beautiful gardening traditional of this place. On both side of the central garden there are two walkways made up of the Portuguese CalĂ
ada, the typical blocks that make the pavement, and lined with tall trees.
Initially, the park was set where the Liberty Avenue was meant to continue. However, in the 20th century, it was open to the public.
Standing at the top, it's possible to see the Castle to our left, the Marques de Pombal statue straight ahead and the many hotels to our show all right. The Marques de Pombal statue sits in the middle of a huge roundabout, also with the same name, and that gives way to the Liberty Avenue, which extends till Restauradores.
I would recommend walking down this park on either side of the garden and enjoy some really nice photos ;)
