What to visit

Aqueduto das Águas Livres

It was once a water catchment and transportation system, and it took almost 70 years to build. It survived the earthquake of 1755 and nowadays it is a museum, which dynamizes free and guided visits. The arcana of the Alcântara valley, made up of 35 arches, is the biggest attraction.

Reservoir of the Mother of Water of Amoreiras

It is the deposit that collects the waters from the Águas Livres Aqueduct and was commonly known as the Mother of Water of Amoreiras. It was built in the Garden in 1834 and presents itself as a large, light-filled space that resembles (in structural terms) a church.

Eduardo VII Park

There are 25 hectares of green area right in the center of the city. The space that once was called Parque da Liberdade, covers the entire length of the Marquês de Pombal and Avenida da Liberdade. It is near the Cold Estuary and once a year it hosts the Book Fair.

Príncipe Real

It is a residential neighborhood, but is quite frequented by its shops, restaurants and gardens. If you decide to visit, the França Borges garden (better known as Jardim do Príncipe Real) is a must stop. It has a children’s space, a terrace and a reservoir in the basement.

Garden and Basílica da Estrela

Ordering to build by the queen D. Maria I this Catholic temple is a mixture between the baroque and the neoclassical style. With a monumental façade and marble sculptures, it has free entrance and is next to Jardim da Estrela, an area inspired by the typical English park.

Elétrico 24

It stopped circulating in 1995, but at the request of many residents and tourists returned to the streets of the capital to make the connection between Campolide and Praça Luís de Camões. With passage through Rua da Politécnica you can easily reach the Botanical Garden of the University of Lisbon.

Fernando Pessoa’s House

Fernando Pessoa was one of the greatest Portuguese writers and poets, obtaining worldwide recognition through his literary works. In the last 15 years of his life he lived in the Campo de Ourique neighborhood in Lisbon. This space has been transformed into a museum house, where you can find pieces of furniture, the art collection and a private library.
