Lisbon is a vibrant and seductive city where old charm coexists with the avant-garde. On this not-to-be-missed guided tour, we begin at Belem, where the caravels left for the New World – an outdoor monument in praise of the Discoveries. Here we will see the Tower of Belem sitting at the Tagus riverside, and the imposing Jeronimos Monastery, both elevated to World Heritage status by UNESCO.
Afterwards, we will continue to Mae d’Agua (Mother of Water), a massive reservoir built between the 18th and 19th century that stored water from the Aguas Livres aqueduct. Inside we will visit a small museum dedicated to the history of the city’s water supply, as well as a cascade with a beautiful light effect. Climbing some stairs, you can access the terrace for an impressive view over Lisbon.
From here we continue our trip to the historical center, to feel the true essence of Lisbon. It’s time to get out of the car and walk between alleys and narrow streets through some of the traditional neighborhoods like Castelo, Mouraria, Graca, and Alfama. It has never been so good to ‘get lost’ while discovering Lisbon!
More info about Lisbon:
Lisbon is Portugal’s coastal capital, also known as ‘the city of seven hills’. This is actually inaccurate, as Lisbon is sitting on eight hills (the eighth one being the tallest – Graça). But, don’t worry, a discrepancy in number of hills will definitely not affect your visit to this wonderful city.
More info about Portugal:
Portugal is a small European country on the Atlantic Ocean, sharing Iberian Peninsula with Spain. The country’s position at the sea has shaped its past and present and will inevitably shape its future. Portugal was major maritime power during 16th to 19th century and this has left deep impact into its culture and history.
