New Activities Path in Monsanto Forest


A new purpose-built route for walking and cycling around Monsanto Forest in Lisbon was officially opened on the 14th of December.
Known as the Corredor Verde (Green Corridor), it stretches from the Avenida da Liberdade in central Lisbon to the western reaches of the forest, covering a total distance of 6.5 km.
The path is part of an initiative to capitalise on the forest's potential for outdoor activities, which covers an area of some 1,000 hectares, a large proportion of which exists within the Greater Lisbon boundary.
Besides walking and cycling, keep-fit enthusiasts can take advantage of one hundred pieces of fitness equipment located in 18 different areas of the forest.
