What to do in Lisboa
The best to be familiar with the beautiful capital, is to start with a ride on Electric 28, one of the symbols of Lisbon, timeless and affordable, which leads us to everywhere.
Then, nothing like going to the Castelo de São Jorge, which does not represent the milestone of Portugal, as it offers one of the best views of the beautiful Lisbon.
Going down to the flea market where antiques gain a new meaning to life and that second-hand goods are authentic relics looking for a space in the hearts of the new owners.
And when hunger presses, nothing like the exquisite taste and warm Pastel de Belém, which reaches its peak in the factory Pastel de Belém, which tell their story since 1837.
Submerging to the Lisbon Metro, the walls of the stations are full of small artistic gestures that must be analyzed to the smallest detail.
In the afternoon, nothing better than drinking a coffee in the traditional ginjinha “The ginjinha Rossio”, this cherry brandy animates the summer afternoons and warm the winter.
Fleeing the chaos of the city, but without leaving the urban fabric, is very easily a time when the touch with nature is easily reached, especially in the gardens of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
Living a cosmopolitan atmosphere, the Chiado Warehouses, recovered after the fire of 1988, these are the central hub for shopping.
To retrieve the fire, nothing like stopping at a cafe in “Brasileira” looking for inspiration and Fernando Pessoa reflection.
To live the real taste and experience of Fado, Casa-Museo Amalia Rodrigues presents the life and dedication of the singer. Or looking for the essence of fado, strolls by-Mouraria or Alfama.
Through Lisbon, arrives at the Park of Nations, which after processing due to Expo 98, has become a place of great attractiveness for tours as for shows and events. This include the Oceanarium, the second largest infrastructure of this kind in the world, and MEO Arena, which hosts major concerts and events.
In honor of the great figures that so marked the history of Portugal, such as music, literature and national politics, the National Pantheon houses these figures, presenting a magnificent architecture.
Not forgetting to visit the monumental landmark of the Age of Discoveries, the Belém Tower continues to offer a magical and historical charm, and was even considered one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.
Nearby, the Jeronimos Monastery attracts attention for its architectural beauty of the sixteenth century, which boasts a wealth of time browsers.
Traversing the Lisbon night, nothing like live music, exhibitions, parties, new friends, new rhythms in Bairro Alto, do Sodre docks and pier.
Or looking for a cultural and artistic aspects, Lisbon offers at the Belém Cultural Centre, the Berardo Collection Museum, where the modern and contemporary art come to life; or seek to visit the National Tile Museum which tells several stories only with the use of tile, a typically Portuguese art.
To live in the moment of pure madness, folly and be in full crowd, the San Antonio parties are puritanical symbol of Lisbon, eating sardines, heard fado and see the parades of masks and of course celebrate the wedding.
