Strap on your shoes and get lost in the oldest & colorful neighborhood of Lisbon. There’s so much character in this part of town, from murals to incredible viewpoints to beautiful but really steep cobblestone streets (no seriously wear comfy footwear) and colorful tiles adorning the walls.
You can also take the famous Tram 28 and explore all the landmarks in several neighborhoods along the way.
Visit for beautiful ornate stonework and gothic architecture in the Belém neighborhood. There is a ticket to go inside. Stop by Pastéis de Belém to grab the national dessert Pastel de nata.
Swing by this beautiful tower near the monastery. Its surrounded by water and looks really amazing. We didn’t go inside cuz it was closed that day but you can with a ticket. I’d recommend going here early morning to avoid crowds.
Sunset Rooftop Bar
Enjoy some drinks and good music while watching the sun setting over the city at Park rooftop bar. A must visit spot at the top floor of a parking garage to enjoy the nightlife of Lisbon like the locals.
Miradouro de Santa Luzia
One of my fave spots to take in the views over the rooftops of Alfama and the Tgaus river. We went here twice during our trip and the vibe of this place was always so amazing. Just a short walk up, there’s another big viewpoint right next to a lively square.
Casa do Alentejo
A 17th century palace in the middle of Lisbon (a short walk from Rossio square) is a hidden gem you should visit. You walkup the steps to a beautiful courtyard and a ballroom and Portuguese restaurant on the top floor.
Praça do Comércio
This grand square of Lisbon is surrounded by shops, restaurants and the Tagus river on the south side. Definitely recommend taking a walk by the river at sunset.
Elevador da Bica
This beautiful funicular makes for a great photo op and you can always ride it up crossing some magnificent buildings and small boutiques on this steep climb.
Thanks a lot for reading. Hope you have a lovely time whenever you plan to visit Lisbon :]
