A very nice spot with a large shadow area. We took the opportunity to come back for picnic. Access to the reservoir undre the basin is located at the center of the garden.

Just in front of the botanical garden (which is closed for restoration) is this wonderful square, full of charm and good vibrations. It is a very lovely area to explore with a lot of interesting shops, nice garden and lovely bars.

This is a very nice area to wander around and it feels safe in the day and evening. Lots of people congregating near the Quiosque das Oliveiras for a quick drink and snack - felt very Portuguese. Nice shops and restaurants in this area

Principe Real
From the splendid garden and its cafe-kiosk to its
restaurants, Príncipe Real is more than worthy of a
visit and it won't let you down: its attractions
include "Pavilhão Chinês" (one of the more eccentric
interior designs you'll ever see), museums and a
fantastic botanical garden. It's also a commercial
neighborhood, and you can visit a renovated Palace,
home of the Embaixada (embassy) trendy shopping center
