If you want to go inside you will waste a lot of time; if not you can walk along the gardens and take photos of the tower from outside, it’s wonderful too.

Santa Justa Lift
(122)
has resulted in a wide range of unusual transport options. Perhaps the most outstanding is the cast iron Santa Justa lift. This national monument is a unique experience, riding in style up to pretty Largo do Carmo. Inaugurated in 1902, amazingly it is still part of the Lisbon public transport infrastructure.

Monument to Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho
(5)
This 1991 memorial commemorates the feat of two great and courageous Portuguese people. This is the replica of the Fairey III-B "Santa Cruz", that made the incredible journey from Lisbon to Rio de Janeiro in 1922 and immediately became heroes. Sacadura Cabral and Gago Coutinho were acclaimed in Portugal and Brazil for this fact, becoming the subject of numerous honors, such as a homage performed posthumously by the Bank of Portugal who placed a portrait on banknotes. They used a sextant as a navigation instrument that had adapted an artificial horizon and this invention revolutionized air navigation. Interestingly one of the stops they made in their route was to refuel in Las Palmas Gando. No doubt heroes.
