From SUNNY LISBON, You can go to Cais dos Sodré trainstation, 20 minutes walking , and pick the ELECTRIC to Belém.

There you have: CENTRO CULTURAL DE BELÉM (1 – contemporary art museum), MOSTEIRO DOS JERÓNIMOS (2 – monastery) , PASTÉIS DE BELÉM (3 – portuguese traditional sweet).

In the other side of the train rail, you have the TAGUS RIVER (4), and the monuments PADRÃO DOS DESCOBRIMENTOS (5) and TORRE DE BELÉM (6).

Between the monuments there is a restaurant that i always suggest: À MARGEM. It is like an overturned glass paving the TAGUS RIVER – the best place for JOGGING in the city, as well as being near the river, passing by the most beautiful interesting monuments.
