Inside CCU - Lúcia Lima and Mariana Neves

On a beautiful sunny day, we bumped into Lúcia Lima and Mariana Neves, two of our administrative assistants, enjoying the view from our public walkway "The Way to the Unknown". We asked them why they had chosen to spend their lunch break in this particular place.

    On a beautiful sunny day, we bumped into Lúcia Lima and Mariana Neves, two of our administrative assistants, enjoying the view from our public walkway "The Way to the Unknown". We asked them why they had chosen to spend their lunch break in this particular place.

    Lúcia: “It’s a calm, quiet area where you can get some fresh air and relax for a few minutes, and even when the weather is not as beautiful as it is today, I still enjoy the wonderful view. The patients and their families come here too, to enjoy the open space close to the river.

    Mariana: “I feel the same – the inside of the Foundation is beautiful too, of course, and I feel really privileged to work here, but you can feel a little closed off if you spend all day inside. Coming out here gives me more energy and when I get back to work, I feel calmer and more relaxed after a breath of fresh air.”

    The public footpath, which rises slowly before revealing a view of the sea, is located next to the open-air amphitheatre, and leads to an infinity pool which is already a recognised part of the city’s heritage. This is a place of perfect synergy between architecture, nature and local history.
