Description:

Colonized by many civilizations along the centuries: Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Moors and finally the Portuguese in 1147, Lisbon is known as the City of the Seven Hills.

On the top of one of those hills, you will visit St. George’s Castle, including its surrounding section – Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest quarter. Close by, you will find the up-scaled Chiado section, just next to upper town or Bairro Alto, known for the exciting and trendy night life, as well as for many restaurant options.

You will realize that Lisboa is deeply linked to the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration, 500 years ago. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent center of a vast empire. Part of the wealth from these expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style: the extravagant Manueline architectural style, best typified in Jerónimos Monastery, that your tour guide will certainly show you.

Other monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém Tower, like the Monument to the Discoveries and many interesting sites such as the Maritime Museum and the Royal Coach Museum, among others.

Being in the area, there is no way how to skip a visit to the pastry shop where the world most famous “Pasteis de Belém” are baked – Confeitaria de Belém.
