Monsanto Forest Park

See the various attractions and activities in Monsanto, which stretch from bird-watching to remote-controlled cars, just a few minutes from the city centre.

Discover “Lisbon’s lungs”, a huge area of forest next to the city which replenishes its oxygen and contributes to the health of the many inhabitants who play sport there – or take their children there at the weekend. This unique getaway in the Monsanto hills – a holy place in ancient times – is a kind of wild but controlled wood, dotted with eucalyptus, oak and pine trees. The 900 hectares of greenery is criss-crossed by cycle paths, endowed with viewing points to admire the Tagus estuary, and inhabited by a large variety of sheltering wildlife: squirrels, rabbits, owls, bats and others.
