Why you should visit it
The Mills of Santana (Old Mill and Sant’Ana) were built for the Irish Dominican nuns of the Good Success Convent, in the mid eighteenth, a time when more or less 100 mills that grind the flour, provided the city. Near touristic Belém, however no tourists here, just peace and quiet.
In the highest point, near the mills, you can have a wide view over the city and see the Tejo river flowing into the Atlantic.
