Lisbon has more charm in springtime, with countless gardens, viewpoints, terraces and parks that invite you to relax. In this selection of the 8 best places to have a drink, there are great views, green spaces where you can breathe tranquility and breathtaking sunsets to enjoy with glass in hand. Take notes.
1. “Jardim Botânico Tropical”, to tune in with nature
. Situated next to “Mosteiro dos Jerónimos”, the magnificent “Jardim Botânico Tropical” occupies an imposing seven-hectare area and is home to some 600 tropical and subtropical species from all over the world. Whoever visits it does not forget the main lake with its Fruit Island, and the surrounding benches that invite you to relax in the sun. Also of note is the Oriental Garden, a thematic area inspired by oriental models. Here, peacocks, ducks, and geese stroll to the sound of water.
This garden is full of details worth discovering at a slow pace. Along the way, find your favorite stopping place and toast with a glass of Mandriola white wine in the company of the imposing dragon tree that can be seen in the garden.
2. “Passeio Marítimo de Oeiras”, to relax by the shore
When the sun starts to peek out, the seaside locations quickly fill up with friends and family looking for places to hang out and relax. “Passeio Marítimo de Oeiras” has more than five kilometers of coastline, punctuated by walls that invite you to stop, contemplate the natural beauty, and toast to the best that life has to offer.”
Starting near “Paço d’Arcos” Beach and ending at “Praia da Torre” Beach, there is plenty of room for walking, running, skating, cycling or simply enjoying the open air with the smell of the sea air in good company. When the sun starts to set, it is a good time to raise a glass of Mandriola red wine and savor the magnificent colors that cover the sky.
3. “Quinta das Conchas”, to inspire fresh air
Lisbon’s third largest lung has 26 hectares of garden. “Quinta das Conchas” dates back to the 16th century and is one of the oldest in the city. But even so, it has remained inviting, bright and fresh. Proof of this is the Valmor and Municipal Architecture Award with which the space was distinguished in 2005. All along the way, there are lawns dotted with olive trees, wild olive trees, eucalyptus trees and unobstructed views.
Here you have access to signposted forest paths, a playground, and an area specially designed for picnics. It’s a perfect place to spread your towel, enjoy the sun, and have a snack. And when you feel thirsty, it’s time to toast with a glass of Mandriola white wine.
4. “Jardim da Cerca da Graça”, para um dia em cheio
“Jardim da Cerca da Graça” is one of the city’s newest green spaces, and it has everything you need to spend a great day. There are three magnificent viewpoints that you won’t want to leave, a picnic area, a picturesque orchard, a kiosk with an esplanade and a children’s playground to delight the young ones.
It is in plain sight, but still few people know about it. It’s two hectares overlooking old Lisbon, which connects “Mouraria” to “Graça”. It is the ideal place to relax with a glass of Mandriola red wine while the kids play with the ball or slide down the slide at full speed. A perfect program.
5. “Miradouro do Arco da Rua Augusta”, for unmissable views
“Miradouro do Arco da Rua Augusta” is one of the most popular places to relax outdoors in the spring. At the top, it offers a breathtaking view over “Terreiro do Paço”, “Baixa Pombalina”, the Cathedral, “São Jorge” Castle, and the “Rio Tejo”.
Access to this little paradise is via an elevator in Rua Augusta. From up there, besides the architectural genius and the impressive view, you can also enjoy a glass of Mandriola white wine.
6. “Parque de Monsanto”, to experience the greener side of spring
“Parque de Monsanto” is the place of choice for walking, outdoor sports, picnics or simply to enjoy the natural beauty. There is plenty of space: in all, there are 1000 hectares of recreational areas, picnic parks, circuits, amphitheaters, camping sites, climbing walls, bike paths and mountain bike trails. There are activities for all tastes and ages, amidst intense greenery and fresh air.
It is not by chance that Monsanto is the choice of many for picnics. Prepare your basket, add two chilled bottles of Mandriola wine, and bring the family for a weekend well spent.
7. “Jardim do Palácio Marquês de Pombal”, to relax quietly
“Jardim do Palácio Marquês de Pombal” is ideal when you are looking for a more tranquil and quiet environment. After all, this place is inspired by the gardens of the Palace of Versailles. There are also several tiled panels and staircases to admire, as well as sculptures, waterfalls, and fountains that make the place even more welcoming.
The Black and white poplar, the jacaranda, and the walnut trees are the main characters. We also find numerous migratory birds that choose this space to rest from their travels. Peace, tranquility, silence, and harmony to make a special toast with a glass of Mandriola white wine, in the company of family or friends.
8. “Miradouro da Graça”, for a drink with a view
Did you know that “Bairro da Graça” is on the highest hill in Lisbon? Before it was one of the most popular viewpoints in the city, it was already the choice of poets, such as Sophia de Mello Breyner. In fact, next to the church there is a bronze bust, sculpted to honor the famous poet.
Here, you can enjoy one of the most breathtaking panoramic views of the city – from “São Jorge” Castle to the river, from “Mouraria” to “Baixa Pombalina”. In the shade of the church, surrounded by the umbrella pines, you can feel the daily life of the neighborhoods bubbling away – the perfect panorama to toast with a glass of Mandriola red wine.
There is no shortage of options for places to have a drink in the spring. Follow this itinerary, enjoy the most appetizing places in Lisbon and make your trip even more special with the unique taste of Mandriola.[seccao_slider] => Array ( [slideshow] => ) [article_text_2] => [showmap] => Não )
