A few hours to discover Lisbon, first of all we will visit the Belém quarter where you will find the most beautiful and historical monuments from the 15th and 16th centuries. A brief stop at the Belém Tower (Torre de Belém) – World Heritage by UNESCO – , point of departure of some of the Portuguese maritime explorations; and on the Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos) , built to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the “death of Prince Henry the Navigator.
Then we visit the church of S. Jerome Monastery (Mosteiro dos Jerónimos) – World Heritage by UNESCO – a masterpiece of the “Manueline” style and the National Coach Museum (Museu Nacional dos Coches) with one of the most important collection of old carriages in the world. Along the river we arrive at Alfama, an old and traditional district, where we will have the opportunity to walk in its narrow streets, and visit an handicraft shop where we’ll taste an aperitif of Port wine.
Then we will pass by the downtown (Baixa) to admire the most important squares of Lisbon such as the monumental Trade Square (Praça do Comércio); Rossio Square, the heart of Lisbon and the symbolic Restauradores Square.
Then we drive along the Liberdade Avenue, the “boulevard” of Lisbon, to finish at Marquês de Pombal Square, admiring the statue of the 18th-century portuguese statesman responsible for Lisbon reconstruction after one of the most deadliest earthquakes in History, the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake.
