Lisbon: Experience the Incredible Attractions

Posted on 20 May 2019 by admin (0)

Lisbon, the city that is always crowded with tourists, has a plethora of history. Starting from nightlife to the museum, you will be able to enjoy it all. There are so many things to do that you are never going to feel bored. Here are some of the best things that you can do when you are in Lisbon.

Marvel at Torre De Belem

Being at Lisbon, missing out on this attraction would have been a mistake. The architecture of the building is truly unique. It stands over the mouth of the river Tagus. It is an iconic feature of the city. As a matter of fact, it might have been the last sight that Vasco da Gama would have noticed while he ventured out in the Atlantic Ocean.

Ride Tram 28

Just like the United States and San Francisco, this city is also popular for the historic tram lines. Tram 28 is iconic which makes its way through the cobbled streets of the city into old Alfama district for decades now. Our journey in the tram started from Graca’s palm-spotted hills and comes to an end beneath the Estrela Basilica’s beautiful dome. I discovered several-year-old history while you pass through the magical castles and palaces along the route.

Tour Alfama District

Alfama District is the oldest part of this city. It dates back to Moors of Africa. The alleys and the winding street forming the district are surely worth a tour. While you stroll, you can take a look at the great cathedrals. The most beautiful one that I came across is the Lisbon Cathedral.

Take a Trip Sintra

This city is only a half an hour drive from Lisbon. I took a day trip. However, if you want, you can also spend one or two in here. It is placed high up among the Mountains of the Moon.
