TIPS: put 10euros on a metro card BEFORE getting to cais de sodre because there are many tourists and he get super long and stressful to get your ticket from the station. Use any machine from any other metro station on your way to do so. ”
“Great natural space. Children amazing park and also lots of walking/biking paths.”

A place that previously housed the city’s top vendors now brings together the best of the city under one roof: its best restaurants, bars and cultural experiences.

If on the ground floor it is too crowded, try the upper floor famous restaurant Pap'Açorda (with a lunch menu more affordable) . ”
