    Pastéis De Belém

    4.5
    69 reviews

    Maybe it seems like a tourist trap, but it was indeed the best spot for pastel de Belem because they serve it hot here. Highly recommended.

    Praça do Comercio

    49 reviews

    Right by the Tejo River, in Baixa, the heart of the city. This is the easiest place to catch trams to Alfama and up Castelo São Jorge. Note: beware of pickpockets on those trams, it's not a myth, one tried to pick mine, they dress like your regular tourist and usually work in tandems, an older guy trying to distract ...

    Palace of Pena

    4.5
    40 reviews

    This gorgeous palace looks out over the magical city of Sintra and is worth every penny to get into. The outside is painted all different sorts of colors and is seen from all around. The inside tells the story of a wealthy king that wanted it all. You can still see a lot of the stuff that was there long ...

    Torre de Belem

    4
    37 reviews

    Go on a Sunday morning for free entry. As good to look at on the outside as it is inside (i.e. there isn't much). For the views, it's better to go to the top of the discovery monument further down the river.

    Castelo de S. Jorge

    4.5
    30 reviews

    The castle is rather elusive on foot as one has to navigate through many winding streets with 'secret' stairways while looking out for signs posting to Castelo de S. Jorge. More easily accessed by tram or by bus, on which one can truly appreciate the adept driving skills of Portuguese bus drivers. The castle itself affords a panoramic view of ...

    22 reviews

    You'll be staying right in the heart of this neighborhood, one of the most typical places to see in Lisbon. Alfama, whose name comes from the arabic word, meaning the fountain, is the only mediaeval quarter in Lisbon, that still keeps its old world charm. In Alfama, also traditionally known as the birthplace of the "Fado", one can have the ...

    Built by the same company that built the SF-Oakland Bay Bridge, Ponte 25deAbril could be easily mistaken for its distant cousin the Golden Gate Bridge...if one does not look carefully!

    Monument to the Discoveries

    4
    19 reviews

    Modern (1960's) monument built on the Belém waterfront to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator. The views from the top are spectacular and worth the small fee to go up in the elevator. Good view also looking down to the huge pavement compass below.

    The beautiful hundreds-of-years-old Rossio train station is located at the Rossio square adopting a facade of Neo-Manueline architecture, in the buzzing center of Lisboa. We hopped on a train here to board the Sintra line which connects Sintra (Sintra train station) with Lisboa (Rossio), the train is extremely efficient and convenient, it's present every 20 minutes and getting on the ...

    16 reviews

    Cross the bridge and you'll have the most fantastic view of the city. If you have time, take the cable car to Vila Nova de Gaia, to take great pictures of the city behind the old boats used to transport the port wine.
