Books in the Park

Everyone seems to be jumping on the Lisbon bandwagon this summer—with good reason. If you haven’t been to Portugal’s capital, get there before it’s swamped by the tourist onslaught. A wonderful place to take a breather from sightseeing is the lovely Jardim da Estrella near the Basilica of the same name.

In the heart of the park, you’ll discover a sweet pond-side café, sculpture gardens, and a beautiful little lending library. Grab a book and stretch-out in the shade of an old tree.
