The area
Neighbourhood: Graça & São Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel like independent villages in the capital's center, and more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants and parks, as well as important monuments like the S. Vicente Church and the National Pantheon, make this a spectacular option for those looking for a more tranquil walk-around in the center of Lisbon. Graça has been the choice of many younger people over the past years, both nationals and expats, given the cozy feeling of the neighborhood and its hidden secrets.

It is difficult to get up in there and even more to descend, but the overview across the city is amazing. Many people around, of course, but not as many as below in Alfama.

I remember the garden in the beginning and the first few years of it’s existence.
Today I have visited the garden for the 1st time in 3 years.
The employees of the Quiosque are complete idiots and probably the most unpleasant people I have ever dealt with. The service is horrible and the food sucks.
The park itself has most of the grass destroyed and is basically frequented by junkies.
What was once a cool park for families and dogs is now a complete freak junkyard show.
Sad.

The park itself is of no interest really, just a few trees and paths with spots of grass. The worst is the Kiosk that serves snacks and drinks. The employee is one of those few Portuguese that plays dumb as soon as they hear a word of English. My husband is American, I'm Portuguese. She heard us speak in English and was surprised when I addressed her in Portuguese with our order. She proceeds to tell me she doesn't understand what a 'garoto' is because she doesn't know 'American words'. When I asked her to confirm she didn't know what a garoto was she had the decency of looking embarrassed and promptly 'remembered' what it was. Next I ordered a 'torrada com manteiga' and she served us a thin slide of whole wheat bread sprinkled with oreganos (you can't make this stuff up). I had her redo it minus the herbs and she still argued she always makes it that way. I mean if you want to deal with the village idiot in a decrepit park this is the place to visit.

This garden is supposed to be the second largest in lissabon. I'd say it's rather a playground than a garden... And there's not much shadow, but it's nice that there's a small cafe.

Loved visiting the Jardim Da Cerca Da Graca. We started our Alfama self-walking tour with an uphill walk to the Garden. It was quiet and fairly empty. Gorgeous views of Lisbon from the park. There's a small cafe kiosk with snacks and drinks. You have a nice view of the castle from there as well.

Such as when stumbling into one of those tranquil little gems located in the middle of a city. Because that is what ‘Jardim Da Cerca Da Graca’ is - a hidden away little park in the middle of bustling Lisbon.

Even thought it might not have the typical scenic view to brag, the place is nevertheless a pleasant visit and absolute ideal if you brought kids along. In the park there is also a tiny café bar where you can get some refreshments and snacks.

So if/when visiting the famous Castelo de São Jorge make sure to stop by on your way down. But you have to pay attention – if not you might just walk by and miss it!

This garden has been just inaugurated (17th of June 2015) and it's one of the biggest green areas in Lisbon. It's located between Graça and Mouraria, two of the historical neighborhoods.

The view is not as good as the view you get from Convento da Graça, but the space is very pleasant and is perfect for young kids as it has a big recreation area.

There is also a bar where you can have some refreshments and enjoy a little terrace. But my favorite is lying on the grass sunbathing.
