Noble palaces, embassies and family mansions mixed with modern buildings and a charm like no other: this is Estrela in a nutshell. Devoted to its bourgeois heritage, Estrela enjoys a privileged location between Lapa, Campo de Ourique and Alcântara. Two of the most popular, though for different reasons, spots in Lisbon are in Estrela. The Jardim da Estrela is a beautiful, spacious park and garden, perfect for families and tourists. Remarkable plant and tree species, like dragon trees, live peacefully together with ducks and swans, peacocks, and parakeets. On the other side of one of the garden’s entrances sits Basílica da Estrela, one of the most impressive 18th century churches in Lisbon. These and more attractions are what make Estrela amazing to visit and explore.
