Abandoned places in Lisbon – Time machine

When we travel, we often come across lots of interesting monuments, buildings, parks and sights. Some may be more maintained than others and usually they're open to everyone for visiting and discovering. If it's a popular destination, there is a high chance that you'll meet other travelers there. And then, on the other hand, there are the less crowded places.
