In almost every guide that exists about Lisbon, Centro Cultural de Belem is one of the most talked about places to go. I also love to go there, but most of the time, what I really love is the cozy terrace that they have, Quadrante.
I don’t go there with the same frequency that I used to go, but during my student years, it was the place to go when I needed to study, now it’s normally a place to go after checking some of the expositions at the Center, or after another round through the Berardo Collection. Sometimes I only take a book with me, and sit on the terrace enjoying Lisbon’s weather and the view that it offers over the river. When the weather is really nice it’s also an option to lie down on the grass and enjoy the view.
It’s a nice place to go even during the colder days when we can just stay inside, where there are some really comfortable sofas.
