Monsanto Green Lane Lisbon – Green path over Lisbon

Relaxing

The "Monsanto Green Lane" is Lisbon's 'green corridor' - walking or cycling over it has become a hobby of mine. A great way to see the city and exercise!

Lisbon is well known for its hills, which provide wonderful views all around, but, on the other hand, makes it a city where it's incredibly difficult to do walking or cycling exercises. So recently the city administration decided to connect those hills, and now it's never been so easy to do jogging, walking, running or cycling round Lisbon, altogether with an astonishing view.

So walking through Monsanto "green corridor" has become a hobby of mine, and it's such a pleasant one that I have never done so much exercise in my life before. Kidding!

Actually the path is incredibly charming and with a great view over the city of Lisbon at every corner. It starts in Eduardo VII park, at the very top. This is the first great view over the castle and the river. There you'll find a wooden bridge, brand new, and that's the start. I usually walk that way, passing by interesting places like the Palace of Justice, the Mosque, and the nice Nova University buildings. Just in front of it there is a hill I always climb up for its gorgeous view of the aqueduct. Along the path there's a sensation that you're always overlooking the city. By the end of the path you enter the huge green forest of Monsanto. When there, look for signs for Serafina Park, where you will find more great views over the city. 

Sometimes all the dots are there, they just need to be connected.
