Travel information

Easy to get to this spot by bus from Oriente station. Lots of parking available.

Walking time from Moscavide metro station is about 25 minutes and not a particularly nice walk, so perhaps take a bus or cab from the station unless you have time to spare.

You can get an Uber to drop you about 5 minutes from this spot and it's easy to get one to go back towards the city.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

@Alona Azaria, are you commenting that picture as it is from Pedro?
Alona Azaria
Alona Azaria 17.09.2018
Dear Emanuel, unfortunately the system here is that if you "add" a photo, rather than create a new spot, the person who posted first gets the story and the coordinates and your story goes to the bin. I meant Pedro, but having said that, your photo is stunning just as well!!! I wish I could say its mine :-) if any of you is giving workshops in Lisbon, let me know.

Pity you do not have them in Lisbon, maybe Pedro? I just dropped you a line by email.

Dear Alorna, thank you again for the comments. I am new in the Photography Hobby, so i'm not feeling confident enough to give workshops, but if you ever come to Lisbon just let me know. If im available i will be glad to show you some spots....( bring your tripod and filters btw)....And as for Emanuel my apologies for the inconvenience, but i have just logged today and im still figure how this works. Regards.

Thanks Pedro, that would be great! I am interested in two spots n.l. the bridge from Passeio de Tejo and the MAAT. Can you get in touch with me through [email protected] because I don't have your email? unfortunately there is no messenger here. Thanks again, guys!

Looking at your photographs. Seems wide angle shots predominate. Do you ever try longer lenses? Do you help visitors find morning or evening photographic sites?
