Photographer's Note

Hi TE friends

This farm is a big green space in the hearth of Lisbon. You have a metro to the place. The Metro station has the same name. "Quintas das Conchas"

The light conditions was not so good, anyway I like the reflections and colours

I hope you like it !

Quintas das Conchas e Liláses (Farm of the shells and Lilac) it's a farm of with an area of 24 ha, the park covers an area with large open lawns and a forested area with lots of locations of nice landscape.

The current Garden is the result of two farms of the sixteenth century and is the third largest green spot of the capital, after Monsanto and the Parque da Bela Vista. There are new structures of roads, paths, parks, and recreational facilities for childrens, a stage for performing shows, the reception and exhibition area, a restaurant and cafeteria.

The great lawn was expanded, offering new areas for sports and play. It is also a space for contemplation and tranquility by the lake...
The entrance is free.
