Parque da Liberdade or Parque das Merendas are ideal for families to have a picnic.
The extensive and rich gastronomy drives everyone crazy, from meat dishes to fine fish dishes, seafood and mollusks. Here you can eat a delicious sea bass or sea bream, an unforgettable octopus, or simply tasting mussels and barnacles.
