The Jardim (Park) da Estrela is opposite the basilica. There are two eating establishments with outdoor seating in the park. What I like about the park, is that it is high on locals and low on tourists. There are some school and a college in the area, which gave rise to a lot of youngsters over the midday hour.
Here, two gents are playing a game of checkers, while another guy is enjoying an ice cold beer and the view.
Over the next week or so, I will do a People in the Park series.
