Wow! If you want to escape the crowds and pollution of the city of Lisbon, you MUST visit here. It was an 8 € uber ride from the city centre there. It was extremely green and the trails were in excellent condition. The air smelled very fresh and you could not hear any noises except for birds. We hiked through some very beautiful woods. Very lush. Now, the trails are very confusing and we wish that they were labeled better. If you can, go to the visitor's centre and get a map. It is a very nice centre and the people working there are very pleasant. We hardly saw anyone on the trails which is unfortunate because it is so beautiful there. Did I mention that it's free?!?

It is hard to believe that within the city of Lisbon, Portugal is a protected forest of almost 2500 acres. It sweeps over the hills and meadowlands and is appreciated and used by its urban inhabitants. There are hiking trails and paths for strolling. I was impressed with its size and how accessible it is to people. A great addition to the capital city of Portugal.

A lot of trails around the park that will dive you into a very healthy forest with a lot of panoramic views to Lisbon as well as Sintra and the big scale of Monsanto.
It's very nice to have such a vast Nature just next to Lisbon.

If you're visiting Lisbon, you must go to Monsanto Park, specially to the old Panoramic Restaurant at the top of a hill. This restaurant was abandoned for decades, but now it has been rehabilitated and is one of the best hidden secrets of Lisbon. You will find many locals there, but not as much tourists because of the difficult access.

I asked a Uber to drop me near the park and ran a 11km loop there. It is quite hilly, but very nice , with lovely scenic views at some point. We didn't try but I guess it would be nice for a family walk and pic nic too on a sunny daty

This walk takes you from the top end of Parque Eduardo VII, in the centre of Lisbon, via the Jardim Amalia Rodrigues, to the Parque Florestal de Monsanto. This route is for walkers and cyclists only and there are wide and clearly marked paths for both. It is an easy walk to the edge of the park, perhaps an hour. We took a picnic and explored a small part of this enormous park. There is a wonderful view over Lisbon, looking down from the highest point. We intend to go back for a guided tour of this big green space so very close to the city. It felt like Lisbon’s version of London’s Hampstead Heath.

This is the ideal park to go for a walk. There are tuns of space for the kids play or even for you and you friends play football or even go with drones.

I am a runner that happens to live near this Forest, so I go there at least 5 or 6 times per week and know fairly well the area.
It is not easy to get there without a car as you have just a few buses that are not that regular or easy to take from the city center.
This is one big place to explore and if you have time and the will you can easily spend 8 hours there and discover wonderfull trails and breathtaking views of Lisbon.
It is wild and a bit uncharted territory in the middle of the city which honestly is what makes monsanto so special.
Avoid going there late at night as you can easily get lost and have a hard time finding your way back home.
If you are into running or mountain biking just follow someone or a group and they happily show you around.

It is a beautiful park but the accesibility is not so good. You can go to the park with the bus or with your own car, but in the park you need to go walking and is very, very big that means that you need time and energy (and good weather, you don't want to be a rainny day). It is an antrophic park, it is not "natural", it was planted by people 100 years ago and since they take care of the park, of the plants and animals. If you have a day off, you can go to walk from the park, but you need a map ( it is very very big). From my point of view it is intersting but it is not on my favorite places from Lisbon.
