    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 ...

    São Jorge Castle

    48 reviews

    Ramparts are a bit narrow in places with low walls so don't go up if you are afraid of heights/have poor spacial awareness or sense of balance! Definitely recommend the camera obscura (free) for an informed, quick tour of the city from inside the Tower of Ulisses.

    Palace of Pena

    40 reviews

    The castle was so pretty to look at from afar but as we got closer the exterior is quite worn. But when I thought about it, it was a very old castle as it was from the 1400's and for it being that old, it's in great condition. It's a trek getting up to the castle. Wear comfortable shoes, you ...

    Torre de Belem

    37 reviews

    The Torre de Belém is a very touristic place but I love the area around it! Eat a Pastel de Nata in this area, it was invented around here! Maybe it's called Pastel de Belém in some cafés because of this..

    Elevador Santa Justa

    43 reviews

    This old elevator can save you from walking up the steep slope from the lower district Baixa to the higher district Bairro Alto. It also has a terrace on the top that offers really nice panoramic views of Lisbon. It’s an expensive ride though (unless you have a Lisbon Card).

    Mosteiro dos Jerónimos

    34 reviews

    I fell head over heels for Mosteiro des Jeronimos when I was planning our trip and fell in love all over again in person. Part of the UNESCO heritage sites, the monastery is nothing short of magnificent. The Manueline style monastery spans the entire length of Praca do Imperio and more, built to honor the famous explorers of Portugal - ...

    Great place for a drink, a good meal, and to wander the streets until late at night amongst the crowds.

    This is the historical soul of Lisbon with its breathtaking scenery and a medieval maze, truly a village within a city. Here you can still find the old trams operating and I loved riding them!

    Avenida da Liberdade

    26 reviews

    This is an important avenue in central Lisbon - 10 lanes plus gardens wide. We took the metro and walked back along this thorough fare. The architecture and shops along the way were very nice.

    Ponte 25 de Abril

    25 reviews

    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!

    Rossio is also known as Praça dom Pedro IV, and it’s the Lisbon’s main square. The most important building you’ll find in Rossio is the National Theater . At its right sits the former site of the Palace of the Inquisition. An earthquake in 1755 almost completely destroyed this district. After the quake the neighborhood was reconstructed following a regular ...

    Monastery of the Hieronymites and Tower of Belém in Lisbon

    18 reviews

    The Monastery can be considered one of the most prominent monuments in Lisbon and is certainly one of the most successful achievements of the Manueline style (Portuguese late-Gothic). In 1983, it was classified by the UNESCO, with nearby Belém Tower, as a World Heritage Site. The tower was commissioned by King John II to be both part of a defense ...

    Where the Land Ends and the Sea Begins... And if you're lucky, you can be the last person in Europe to see the sun set. Cabo da Roca (Cape Roca) is a cape which forms the westernmost point of both mainland Portugal, mainland Europe and the Eurasian land mass. The place is wind beaten and bit tourist infested and it ...
