Why locals love it

The park’s name was given in honor of Edward VII of United Kingdom in 1903. The year before, he visited Lisbon to reaffirm the alliance between both countries. The current configuration was designed by the architect Keil do Amaral, however many people think that the space only serves to tourists take a sunbathing.

Why you should visit it

On the top of the park, is hoisted a big Portugal’s flag and a view over Lisbon, that covers Marquês de Pombal and goes through Liberdade Avenue till it reaches the river. There is a cold greenhouse and a warm greenhouse. There is also a Pavilion named after Carlos Lopes (winner of an Olympic marathon), whose outside walls are covered with tiles.

Special tip

Usually in May and June, takes place the Book Fair; in 2013 will be the 83th edition. There is a picnic area under the trees.

Great place to escape the overcrowded downtown areas, take a step back and enjoy the spectacular view along Avenida Liberdade all the way over Baixa and rio Tejo.

It is a good starting point here to go for a walk around Lisbon most famous views and places. Its the beginning of the new Lisbon after the earthquake strike.

It's a beautiful park in the middle of the city and it has great view over Lisbon. I don't recommend to visit in the night...
