Well, this is certainly a beautiful park in the midst of the city...and it looks clean and well-kept!

It does look incredibly deserted.

Why are there so little people about? It looks like a really lovely park. I like the simple fountains ;D

@ Kaori - Most of my fellow citizen are still eating their pranzo domenicale (Sunday lunch) at this time, which is often an occasion for minor family reunions.

Lovely park. Always nice to have large parks in city areas.
Where have all the people gone---
well now I know after reading your last comment. Sundy lunch with family is wonderful--we would call it brunch. MB

We also had an Odeon movie theater in Lisbon... The building was falling apart last time I passed by but have no idea what's going on there now. Have to check it.

You'd think Sunday afternoon would be just the time to head to the park. Glad you got it all to yourself!

You will have to go back in a busy day.

That blue blue sky makes me think it's already a crisp fall day. But then, hey, we're into October... when did THAT happen! :-D
