On a steep slope to the north of the centre, Parque Eduardo VII is the city’s main park, whose views and tropical greenhouses make for a pleasant escape from the bustle of the city. Northwest of the park, the Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian is Portugal’s premier cultural centre, combining one of Europe’s richest art collections at the Museu Gulbenkian with Portuguese contemporary art at the Centro de Arte Moderna. Beyond are further attractions at Campo Pequeno’s Praça de Touros (bullring) and the Jardim Zoológico, the city’s zoo, which lies around 2km north west of the Gulbenkian.
