The dock area below 25 de Abril Bridge along the river in Alcantara between Baixa and Belem is one of the city's most pleasant places for a drink in late afternoon and with a lively atmosphere at night.
Former warehouses overlooking an attractive yachting marina have been transformed into a multitude of cosmopolitan bars and restaurants for all tastes.
Those who enjoy walking can also set off from here to the monuments in Belém, through the green lawns along the river (about a 30-minute walk).
The best way to get here is by train from Cais do Sodré station, exiting at the Alcântara-Mar station (journey time is just 4 minutes).
