Lisbon has more to offer, than what appears in the guides

You want to know the most peaceful and isolated places in Lisbon? Then choose to deviate from the classic tourist paths and meet the Lisbon alternative that does not come in the guides.


Jardins da Gulbenkian

It is one of the most peaceful places in the Portuguese capital. Right in the center of the city full of hustle and bustle at Avenida de Berna , the Garden of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (pictured) is a true haven of tranquility. The silence and peace that they feel in this space stress up as we approach the lake. There are several routes lead to this, by the way, making the Gulbenkian gardens a wonderful maze of greenery, statues and lakes, which can predict couples strolling, children playing and weekenders enjoying a good book.

Pastelaria Aloma

In the friendly Campo de Ourique neighborhood we can find pastry Aloma, who has won the Contest of the best Pastel de Nata three times. This title helped to bring more people to the house. But despite Aloma pastries have been mentioned by the New York Times and CNN, 85% of usual customers remain national. It is ideal to escape to queues to try Pastel de Nata in Belém and still taste this delicacy at its best.
