Why locals love it

Perfect for a good time in a weekend, there is a picnic area, playground for children, skating rink, skate park, bandstand, lake, outdoor amphitheater, all this surrounded by numerous trees and bushes.

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.

Special tip

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.
