Walking Around in Lisbon on 27Mar2016

Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara - Jardim António Nobre

Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara – Jardim António Nobre

after returning from jeronimos monastery & belem tower etc,

we had a nice cuppa (there was no nespresso capsules so we made filter coffee from some leftover pretty good coffee powder) & rest at the apartment before going out for an evening stroll.

daughter booked a nice spacious 200sqm 3-bedroom apartment at rua da misericórdia 98 for our 4pax lisbon stay.

it was a short walk past the st rogue church to the square,Jardim de São Pedro de Alcântara, where some street stalls are peddling handicrafts, ginjinha (cherry wine) & small eats. 🙂

there was this famous ginjinha sem rival …

everyone was queueing up.

my son bought 2 cups. it was pretty strong & sweet wine with cherries at the bottom.

later we learned that in many places you are served with a chocolate container & finished off with the chocolate. didn’t have that this time though. 🙂

the santa justa elevator was round the corner, cost €5 for 2 trips.

there was a long queue.

i looked at the google map which showed the restaurants nearby.

with a spot of luck, we picked sacramento, and that was the best restaurant & best meal we had in lisbon.

we liked it so much we went back again the evening before leaving lisbon for porto. ^^
