Parque Eduardo VII: a green oasis in the city centre
The idea of building a large park at the top of the iconic Avenida da Liberdade dates back to 1882. The project was handed over to the architect Henri Lusseau, who conceived a romantic plan in a picturesque style, with alleys and lakes. It was only in 1903, with the visit of King Edward VII, of the United Kingdom, that the space was named after him. Since then, it has become one of the main settings for fairs, exhibitions and entertainment in the city – even today it is the stage of the famous Lisbon Book Fair.
The charm of this iconic park is difficult to forget. Developed on uneven ground, in a rectangular shape, Parque Eduardo VII occupies about 25 hectares, mostly consisting of greenery and wooded areas. Five minutes from Parque apartments, nature and tranquillity reign. But the charms of this place do not end there…
What to see at Parque Eduardo VII?
A visit to this extensive green space is not complete without discovering the Cold Greenhouse of Lisbon. This is one of the most beautiful and best-kept places in the city, full of small caves, lakes, waterfalls, statues, and plants of all shapes and sizes. Here you will find species from China, Mexico, Brazil and even Australia. Get ready to explore a magical setting!
Afterwards, you will need to take few minutes to explore the Parque Eduardo VII viewpoint. Located on the northern top, this is the ideal place to gaze at the beauty of Lisbon. With views of Avenida da Liberdade and Downtown Pombalina on one side, the Castle of São Jorge on another, and Convento do Carmo, all of this with the Tagus River as a magical backdrop. You will want to take a photograph or too!
Culture and nature at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation
Unanimously considered one of the most important cultural centres in the country, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is a must-see for those who love art, and nature.
The collections of the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum – the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian Collection and the Modern Art Center – take us on a journey through the diverse and stimulating artistic paths between Ancient Egyptian and contemporary times. Dedicated since its creation to education, science and the arts, here you can find varied exhibitions, concerts and activities for the whole family.
The charms of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, just a few minutes’ walk from Parque apartments, do not end there. After all, the fantastic gardens are noteworthy for taking in an afternoon stroll. With a lake and a stream, several trails and a variety of fauna and flora, this has become a favourite in which to stroll and enjoy moments of silence and relaxation.
The privileged location of your accommodation will allow you to enjoy several memorable plans. Very close to the building, you will find El Corte Inglês, one of the most renowned warehouses for shopping or going to the cinema. Alternatively, two kilometres away is Lisbon Zoo, where you can spend a fun day with the family. Options abound!
