Why locals love it

Music Season with Gulbenkian Orchestra and Choir, permanent exhibitions of the collections of Calouste Gulbenkian Museum and Modern Art Centre. Also temporary exhibitions, symposia and conferences. The immense garden of lush greenery is fresh and inviting, pieces of sculpture spread between paths and lawns.

Why you should visit it

The main building houses the headquarters of the Foundation and part of the art collection (ancient Egypt, Eastern art, European painting and jewelry). The Modern Art Centre has paintings from Portuguese artists like Almada Negreiros and Amadeo de Souza-Cardoso. Check if there is a performance in the outdoor amphitheater.

Special tip

In a sunny day take a blanket or beach towel and lay down near the lake with a book and the ducks’ company.

One of the cooler "art places" in Lisbon, there is always something happening there, either exhibitions, concerts, festivals, check out their cultural calender. It's usually either free or very cheap, and the beautiful gardens are always open for free for everyone
