Largo da Graca, Lisbon, Portugal, 2010[open in full screen]  

 
 

This square actually consist of three separate connected spaces around oldest lisboa church – Graca built in 1271. Most attractive and most popular space is one of the finest "miradouro" in Lisboa offering splendid panoramic views of the whole city and Tagus river in the distance.

 

Its open air cafe, pleasantly inexpensive, is popular specially during late summer afternoons. Other space is in front of the church providing access to this vast church visible from any where [take a look at the little photo right]. Third almost completely separated space is park. It is frequently visited by local urban dog lovers.

  We've spent quite a long time relaxing in the above mentioned cafe and walk down the hill true the Graca neighbourhood was one of the most enjoyable ever.

We visited this space again in 2017, space is cleaned up and somewhat renovated.
