ABOUT LISBON

General information and recomendations about the selected destination

 
 
 

LISBON

 

Lisbon is the capital of Portugal and its largest city, and also one of the oldest cities in the world and the oldest in Western Europe. The city of seven hills, it  has myriad attractions, and its light and unique features enchant writers, photographers and film-makers. 

Marvel at the views  from - the São Jorge Castle, São Pedro de Alcântara, Graça, Santa Catarina, or from the statue of Christ the King on the other side of the River Tagus. Take a walk through typical neighbourhoods like Alfama or Bairro Alto, a tram through the more traditional areas, a boat trip on the river or even a trip on the metro with its colourful stations. 

What we can see and do in Lisbon:

 Mosteiro dos Jerónimos The magnificence of the building reflects the universalist vision of its founder and the powerful financial resources that the Portuguese crown enjoyed at that time. The 16th century was Lisbon’s golden era inspiring a unique style that later came to be known as "Manueline"The decorative features carved out of the monastery`s stone (many of which were inspired by the sea) are incredible.  The most impressive features of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, which was classified as an UNESCO World Heritage in 1983, are Santa Maria Church, cloisters and the larger monastic rooms. 

Belem Tower is a beautiful monument originally built as a fortified lighthouse to guard the entrance to the port. Its harmonious and distinctive shape is sharply outlined against the sky and the water of the River Tagus, and the delicate decoration of its stone suggests to those who feast their eyes upon it the appearance of a finely carved jewel.  In 1983, it was also designated  as an UNESCO World Heritage site. 

Quelez’s National Palace this palace is one of the finest examples of Portuguese architecture in the late 18th century. It has been further enriched by an important museum of decorative art, whose collections mostly belonged to the royal family and are exhibited in an appropriate setting. 

There are plenty of other things to admire about Lisbon too : the colourful tiled buildings, art-nouveau establishments, other monuments and museums (Tile museum, Fado museum, Antique Art museum...), parks, squares, the Atlantic Ocean,  the Coach Museum,  not to mention sampling its food and delicious Belém custard-style tarts....

The medieval 12th century Roman Catholic Cathedral (Sé) is worth seeing, a starting point for many pilgrims doing the Camino de Santiago.

Places worth visiting close to Lisbon include the UNESCO heritage site the National Palace in Sintra, with its beautiful painted rooms and huge pair of conical chimneys, the most characteristic feature of Sintra, or Cascais, a traditional seaside fishing village,which underwent significant development in the 14th century, when it was a busy port of call for ships on their way to Lisbon.
