Baixa Pombalina Lisboa

Baixa Pombalina, or, more simply put, Baixa, is a district of Lisbon and one of the most popular even, at least from a tourist point of view. The prestige of Baixa does not lie exclusively in its tourist reputation, but also in the fact it is one of the first and most faultless earthquake-resistant urban planning and construction examples in Europe. Indeed, the Baixa district was completely renovated after the massive cataclysmic incident in 1755 (earthquake, tsunami and fire), and it is to the first Marquis of Pombal (from where the name “Pombalina” derives), Sebastiao Jose de Carvalho e Melo, that Baixa owes much of its present look and patrimony. The district enjoys a virtually central location, extending between the Tagus River and the Liberty Avenue (Avenida da Liberdade), neighboring at the same time on the Alfama district. It is replete with architectural marvels and aesthetically pleasing sets, being deemed the most elegant of all districts in Lisbon. Baixa is simultaneously the shopping and banking district of the city, but the bottom line is it stands out as one of the highest rated tourist hotspots in the capital of Portugal.

"I'll recommend you to anyone!"
Thank you so much for your help, it was easy to find the right place! And also the boat trip was so nice, with a nice boat, some music and the three parrots, excellent !! For sure money well spent, and I'll recommend you to anyone going to south Portugal!! Thanks again!
"Best kayak tour in Lagos!"
This tour was amazing. You get on the boat inside the marina and from there they take you to the beautiful Ponta da Piedade and you get on the kayaks and go exploring the caves! This way you keep your energy for the important part. Professional crew and everything works just fine. Recommend it a lot for all ages.

"The most complete boat tour"
This boat tour was awesome! Besides the beautiful views you get from the boat, you have access to many water toys, SUP, kayaks, etc. The lunch was very good and you could chose between roasted chicken, tuna salad and a veggie dish. Was very relaxed and we had a great time. Recommend it very much!
