Lisbon And Surrounding Areas

The capital of Portugal, bordered by the Tagus River, offers a wealth of taste, culture and experiences. The Baixa Pombalina (Pombaline Lower Town), built after the 1755 earthquake, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Jerónimos Monastery), founded by King D. Manuel I in the early 16th century and icon of the Manueline style, historic neighbourhoods such as Alfama, as well as its most modern and contemporary areas, such as Docas or Parque das Nações, are some of the major landmarks and points of interest in the city of Lisbon. As you follow the Lisbon coast, you will find other places of diverse interest, such as the seaside resorts of Cascais or the magical, mystical town of Sintra.

In the evening, you can dine in a typical Portuguese restaurant to the sound of Lisbon's Fado, a musical genre originating in the 19th century in the city's historic neighbourhoods among the working class, which was named an intangible cultural heritage of humanity by UNESCO in 2011.
