Must See & Do
Lisbon, city of grit and glamour! Her contagious enthusiasm will quickly teach you that 'destination unknown' is the best way to unravel Lisbon. Filing past azulejo-splashed architecture and wine-stained traditional tabernas in the city's compact web of crotchety back alleys with no particular place to go is pure poetry. And amid these seven hills, you always emerge to a view, be it castelo, Tejo or tram, that slacks your jaw with unrelenting consistency.
FOODS TO TRY:
Pasteis de Belem
Pasteis de nata, a kind of custard tart, are as pervasive in Lisbon as bagels are in Manhattan. The only place to go for the original, though, is the Antiga Confeitaria de Belem, a tile-decorated bakery on the western edge of the city, where they are known as Pasteis de Belem. Often dusted with cinnamon and powdered sugar, Pastéis de Belém are made from a secret recipe the current establishment guards far more carefully than the church baker who sold it to them almost 200 years ago. Most people order them to go, often after waiting in lines that stretch out the door. But these soft-in-the-center sweets go best with coffee, and you'll want the time to nibble at them, still warm from the oven, in one of the bakery’s serving rooms.
Miradouro da Graca
Lisbon is known for its countless impressive viewpoints, or miradouros, but most prove to be overcrowded tourist centres during the day. This lesser-known viewpoint is located close to the Castelo de São Jorge in the sleepy neighbourhood of Graça. The miradouro offers a panoramic view of much of the downtown areas of Lisbon and beyond. An extra bonus is the small bar-cum-kiosque selling both hot and cold drinks, allowing you to sip a refreshingly cold Sagres beer and admire the urban jungle from above.
- Jeronimos Monastery The resting place of explorer Vasco da Gama is a church built in the 1500s as part of a magnificent monastery. Its cloisters are considered among the most beautiful in the world and has been listed as a World Heritage Site.
- Belem Tower The city's icon is also a symbol of the Age of Discovery. Built in the early 1500s, this ornate watchtower has been declared a World Heritage monument by UNESCO.
- St George’s Castle From the millennium-old battlements of this castle you have a bird's-eye view of the city in the company of roaming peacocks. Inside is a small archaeological museum and down the hill are a couple of terraces with perfect postcard views over Alfama, the city's medieval village-like neighborhood.
- Calouste Gulbenkian Museum Treasures from the East and the West collected by one man is now one of the world's finest private art collections. It includes works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Monet and René Lalique.
- Parque Das Nacoes Contrasting with the city's oldest neighborhoods is this 21st-century district showcasing striking contemporary architecture with Europe's longest bridge as the backdrop. It includes a state-of-the-art aquarium, a casino, and a wonderful waterfront promenade.
