Known for its bacalhau and egg tarts, Lisbon is another popular tourist destination within Europe. The capital of Portugal, this cosmopolitan city is known for its beautiful viewpoints of ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals.

Jerónimos Monastery

A fifteenth-century Church of Santa Maria de Belém, entrance is free for the chapel. It is a place for serenity and reflection. The outside exterior is impressively massive, and embodies the Portuguese Gothic Manueline style of architecture.

Belém Tower / Pastéis de Belém

One of the cutest towers you’ll ever see. It’s relatively small compared to the usual towers but this structure was built as a defense line against possible invasions – especially since it’s so close to the monastery, a place that is well defended against attacks. One has the option to admire the view from outside or pay the entrance to see what’s inside.

While you’re in the area, drop by Pastéis de Belém to try out the popular ‘pastel de nata’ , similar to a flan or egg custard tart. It’s a go-to bakery cafe offering Portuguese baked goods.

Castelo de S. Jorge

Be prepared to hike a little to fully appreciate this 11th century old castle. Located high on a hill, majestically above Lisbon, pay to enter and this popular tourist destination offers some of the most beautiful views of the city.

Santa Justa Lift

Located within the city center, and surrounded by popular shopping destinations, this historical piece of architecture was designed by Raoul Mesnier, a student of Gustave Eiffel from the uber popular Eiffel Tower in Paris.

Parque Eduardo VII

Ready for some photo ops against a stretch of greens? This is the largest park in Lisbon. What’s more, this park is free! Head to the top of the park to see the city view!
