A great seafaring nation, the Portuguese set sail from Lisbon on their voyages of discovery. Great riches awaited them and the wealth they brought back funded the beautiful monuments and buildings that we see around the city today.
Sao Jorge Castle
On one of the seven hills of the city lies the ruin of the Sao Jorge Castle. From up here you can find panoramic views and exploring the castle in the sun is one of the best things to do in Lisbon.
The glittering monastery is amazing to visit for its intricate and ornate architecture. Be sure to try the famous Pastel de Nata nearby!
Wandering through the narrow streets of Lisbon is absolutely delightful; the cobbles beneath your feet hark back to centuries gone by as quaint trams climb the narrow hills.
