So I will leave you now with 5 attractions you can not miss in your visit to Lisbon.


  • Mosteiro dos Jerónimos

Jeronimos Monastery is a church located on Belém and built in the 16th century. There you can see its cloisters - considered one of the most beautiful in the world. There are many attractions inside to see: high altar, south and main portal, church of St. Maria, sacristy, library and chapter room.

  • Torre de Belém

Another important touristic place to visit is Belém Tower, really close to Jeronimos Monastery, in Belém. It represents the role Portuguese people had during the maritime discoveries, in the Age of Discoveries, back in the 15th and 16th century. This watchtower was declared a World Heritage Monument by UNESCO. The tower was built in the early 16th century.

Note: Portuguese sailors discovered India and Brasil, in 1498 and 1500, respectively.


  • Castelo de São Jorge

São Jorge Castle is a monument located in the center of Lisbon. Its a Moorish Castle built in 48 BC, when Lisbon was a Roman municipality. There you can visit the archaeological museum and take some nice picture with the fantastic view you have for all city and the Tejo River.

  • Elétrico

One of the most traditional public transport in Lisbon is the Elétrico - Tram. It operates since 1873 and it has 5 different urban lines. It is the perfect way to travel within the city of Lisbon while you see some of the most typical quarters ("Bairros").

Note: I recommend you to catch the Elétrico 28 from Estrela to Graça.


  • Parque das Nações

Parque das Nações is the most modern part of the city of Lisbon. There you can see the contemporary architecture with a perfect view for Tejo River. Also you can admire the longest bridge ever built in Europe -  Vasco da Gama Bridge (17 kilometers - 10,6 miles).
