New Avenues and Avenida da Liberdade
The luxury of Avenida da Liberdade (Liberty Avenue)
Going down the avenue from North to South, from the beautiful Eduardo VIIth Park and the Marquês de Pombal Square, surmounted by the statue of the enlightened 18th century Portuguese statesman, and descending all the way to the Restauradores Square, this is a walking trip not to miss in a visit to the city.
Avenidas Novas (New Avenues)
The New Avenues area, outlined by the plan of Frederico Ressano Garcia, is a privileged area for shopping, restaurants and housing, offering a taste of cosmopolitan Lisbon in its purest state. The Saldanha Square, from where you arrive coming up Fontes Pereira de Melo Avenue and the República Avenue, provides to the visitor the heart flutter of Lisbon.
It is perpendicular to these axes that the New Avenues developed, an orderly open and orthogonal plan, similar to all the major capitals. Further East, the Gulbenkian Foundation gardens, created in the 1950s of the 20th century in the grounds of the former Popular Fair in Lisbon, with its variety of musical and cultural offers unique in the country and its museums of classical and contemporary Art, is a place not to miss.
