Jardim 9 de Abril is a lovely garden with a viewpoint, the Miradouro da Rocha Conde de Óbidos, located in the parrish of Estrela. It sits next to the Museu de Arte Antiga, and in front of the cruise and cargo ship terminal below. Coming from Avenida 24 de Julho, a large stone stairway gets you to the site. The name comes from the day the portuguese troops suffered a heavy defeat during the first world war, in 1928. The garden, however, offers a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere where you can enjoy the incredible sights of the Tejo and Almada at a distance, watching the ships and trains pass by, reading a book under the tall trees or hanging out with good company. A circular bench under the shade of romantic tree branches is a highlight. There is also a quiet and charming bar-restaurant nearby, with a fantastic view aswell.
