What people say

"Get to know the “lungs of Lisbon”, the immense forested area next to the city that contributes, daily, to the renewal of oxygen and the health of the many inhabitants who practice sports there every day – or who take their children there on the weekend. A unique escape in the Monsanto mountains – and a sacred space in antiquity – is a kind of controlled wild forest, punctuated by eucalyptus, oak and pine trees. There are 900 hectares of green space, covered by cycle paths; favored with viewpoints to observe the entire Tagus River estuary; and inhabited by a vast forest fauna. Squirrels, rabbits, owls, bats and many others find shelter here. Come and discover Monsanto's various attractions and activities, ranging from ornithology to radio modeling, always just a few minutes from the center of the capital"
"Monsanto Forest Park is a vast green area that offers recreational opportunities and a natural escape within the city. It is characterised by its diverse ecosystems, including forests, meadows, and water bodies, contributing to a rich biodiversity. The park provides space for jogging, picnicking, hiking, and cycling. It's a favorite spot for locals to enjoy outdoor activities."
"This park is a great option if you want to go for long walks, take some trails, and enjoy the green scenery. "
