Estrela Garden

Exotic trees in a pleasant park



Estrela garden, Lisbon


Across from Estrela Basilica is this delightful neighborhood park, one of the loveliest in the city and a favorite with families.

There are exotic plants and trees, a small duck-dotted lake, various sculptures, a children's playground, and an attractive wrought-iron gazebo that serves as an old-fashioned bandstand.
The pond-side café is a good place for a break.

Beyond the park is the English Cemetery, founded in 1717 and originally shared with the Dutch community. Novelist Henry Fielding, author of Tom Jones, died during a visit to Lisbon and is buried here. If you're curious, ring a bell to be let in.

Ride Lisbon's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
