Parque Eduardo VII, Lisbon, 1070-051

The Basics

Carlos Lopes Pavilion (Pavilhao Carlos Lopes) hosts many types of events, from dance performances to political gatherings, and while at times it may be open to all, the building primarily is rented out for conferences and other private functions. However, even if the interiors are not accessible, it is still worth stopping by to admire the 1920s architecture and craftsmanship. The Parque Eduardo VII is a major stop on many Lisbon city tours, and hop-on hop-off bus tours stop here, as well.

When to Get There

If you want to see the interior of the pavilion, check ahead of time with your tour guide or Lisbon Tourism for special events and exhibitions open to the public. The surrounding park is open 24 hours a day but is best visited at dawn (for photography) or around sunset in summer, when temperatures begin to cool down and the light is the prettiest.

Parque Eduardo VII

Parque Eduardo VII, a 62-acre (25-hectare) expanse situated inside on old quarry, is a popular stop on local tours and a great place to take photos, owing to its geometrically shaped hedges, sprawling lawns, greenhouses, and great views of the city of Lisbon and the River Targus beyond.
