Jeronimos Monastery

A former monastery of the Order of Saint Jerome and one of the most prominent examples of the Portuguese Late Gothic Manueline style of architecture in Lisbon, that was classified a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Together with the Belém Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, this landmark represents an important era of Portugal history - Age of Discovery. It has a long and very interesting history, so we definitely recommend Jeronimos Monastery tours, if you want to get 100% of your visit.
 

Belém Tower

One of the most popular tourist attractions of Lisbon, that is also on Lists of World Heritage sites by UNESCO. It was built in the 16th century as a fort to protect the coast from foreign attacks and today it is the most iconic symbol of Lisbon. This defensive yet elegant building is often portrayed as a symbol of Europe's Age of Discoveries, so if you want to learn about its history, you should check out our Belém Tower tours.
 

Alfama District

Alfama is the oldest part of the city, that dates back to the Moors of Africa. Today it contains many important historical attractions, as well as an abundance of Fado bars and restaurants. Alfama was once the whole city of Lisbon, and although the city grew, it remained the heart of the capital.

Sintra

If you have time for a trip, visit Sintra! This UNESCO World Heritage Site is situated more than half an hour away from Lisbon by car and it is definitely worth it.

Christ Monument Lisbon

This 110 metre tall Sanctuary of Christ the King is located on the opposite bank of the Tejo, so we recommend to get there with transport of our Christ Monument Lisbon tours. The Catholic monument and shrine is inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil and it was created in 1959 to express gratitude because the Portuguese were spared the effects of World War II.
