Monsanto North: Parque Recreativo do Alvito
A refuge from the fuss of the city with a fantastic view of what you’re missing
The north side of Monsanto is perhaps the most visited area in all of the enormous park since it’s kept very clean and most everything is in working order. This tranquil area is home to one of the more beautiful viewpoints over Lisbon. Walk along the promenade or check out the nearby playground. The play area itself resembles an elevated house on one side and a boat with ropes, bridges, swings, hidey-holes, and about eight slides of varying height on the other. There is a cafe is just off to the side with a bar and picnic tables if you’re in need of a little respite from your walkabout.
