“Trataré de ser breve: este verano decidí ir por mi cuenta a Portugal, con paradas en Lisboa y Oporto. Ir a la aventura está bien, pero también gusta que te expliquen un poco que estás viendo. El punto de encuentro, en Marqués de Pombal, no tiene perdida, nada más llegar ves un montón de autobuses y organizadores con carteles de cada excursión. ...Saul A., Spain – See more reviews
What To Expect
Discover the city of Lisbon together with a knowledgeable guide who will tell you all about the history behind each place you visit.
Start off by passing the picturesque views of Lisbon's hills as you make your way to your first destination, the Belem Quarter. Decorated with antiquated monuments from the 15th and 16th centuries, the Belem Quarter presents a medieval paradise for history fanatics. Marvel at the sight of the Belem Tower, a fortified tower built with Manueline-style architecture. This UNESCO World Heritage Site represents the discoveries made during the Portuguese maritime explorations.
Then, visit the St. Jeronimos Monastery, another famous World Heritage Site of Portugal. This monastery was built as a thank you to the Virgin Mary for Vasco de Gama's successful journey to India. The construction of the monastery was funded by the treasures taken home from the explorations in South America, Africa, and Asia.
Next, head over to the Monument to the Discoveries, a monument built to honor the 500th anniversary of Henry the Navigator's death. Standing at the marina of Belem, the monument rises above the starting point of Portugal's brave explorers.
Feast your eyes at the myriad of 18th century luxury coaches at the National Coach Museum. This museum showcases the city's finest collection of historical carriages from the 17th to the 19th century.
Take a trip back memory lane on your visit to Alfama, the oldest district in Lisbon where 17th century churches and excellent museums are plenty. Stop by a handicraft shop where you will get the chance to taste authentic Port wine.
End the tour with a visit to the Rossio Square. Present since the Middle Ages, the Rossio Square has been the venue for several bullfights, celebrations, executions, and revolutions. Today, it is a popular meeting point for Lisbon tourists and locals alike.
