In this place you can appreciate the views to one part of the city. It is a beautiful little garden with lots of history. It's very close to other attractions so you can just take a look when passing by.

You must visit this with some Portuguese translator, since there´s plenty of "signs" with interesting messages to read. Also a nice view to the new Stadium.
