Portugal’s capital Lisbon is the largest city in the country and one of the most visited in Europe.
The charm of this city lies in its climate, its monuments, its history and its green, lush and maybe even, melancholic landscape.
Set on seven hills and close to a river, Lisbon will surprise you with the culture it has to offer, the city’s relaxed atmosphere, lovely weather and the vibrant nightlife.
Lisbon strongly contributed to geographical discoveries during Portugal’s Golden Age. In fact, Vasco de Gama´s ships left from here in order to discover the route to India.
In commemoration of this event and as homage to the most important Portuguese navigators, the “Pedrão dos Descubrimientos” (monument of the discoveries) was recently erected.
What is there to do in Lisbon?
Walk down the large avenues, adorned with Modern style palaces, tiled streets and outdoor cafes.
Lose yourself in the narrow streets of the Barrio Alto, one of the few neighbourhoods that has survived the earthquake of 1755. Forget the streets full of people and tourists in Rossio. You should stop by one of the dark “fado” bars, where you will be able to listen to a part of Portuguese culture; “fado” is very characteristic of the dignified Portuguese culture, and epitomises the people’s authenticity and deeply melancholic spirit.
Have a look around Alfama, the city’s historic centre; it perfectly reflects the various influences that have shaped the melting pot that is Lisbon. Phoenicians, Iberians, Romans and Moors all had their say and thereby contributed to the city’s cultural diversity. A visit to Chiado is definitely worthwhile. The neighbourhood is famous for its cultural heritage. And if you are interested in poetry you should not miss the many statues of literary personalities that are spread throughout the area, one of the most famous being, the statue of “The Poet of Lisbon”; Fernando Pessoa.
Do not forget to visit the Belém Tower, the fortified tower wich has been declared a national heritage site, and furthermore is considered to be one of the symbols of the great era of discoveries. The tower’s architecture cleverly combines Gothic and Byzantine elements. Other must-sees are the São Jorge castle and the Santa Maria Major Cathedral.
A trip to the beach is also very worth-while, past the cities of Cascais and Estoril, where you will be amazed by the sight of the Atlantic waves crashing into the rocks.
And when hunger hits you, try some local food, very cheap and delicious, served in good-sized portions. Traditional cuisine includes “sardinhas assadas” (grilled anchovies) and “pastéis de bacalhau” (codfish cakes). The food can be washed down with some good Portuguese wine or port, undoubtedly the most international Portuguese drink. And to round off your culinary experience, have some “pastèis de nata” (egg tart pastry), one of Lisbon’s many delicacies.
