Cheap flights from Germany to Portugal from only 77$.

Perhaps the most nostalgic city of Europe. Built on the estuary of the largest Iberian River, the Tagus, it has twenty centuries of history and a modern soul, combining the cosmopolitan vibrancy of a modern city with an old-fashioned aura. To experience it as it suits it, you must have a mood for walking uphill and downhill in the picturesque districts of Alfama and Mouraria, which have “begun” the melancholy fad, and in Bairro Alto, the heart of Lisbon, vibrant with life. Known for its shops and nightlife, the Bairro Alto is full of trendy restaurants and bars alternating on the same street as the traditional taverns, the tascas, where you will hear an ornate ghost. In Belem again, you will take photos of the historic tower and you will see where the Tagus joins the Atlantic – from there the caravels once began to conquer the previously unknown world. As well as the nearby attractions are many (Monastery of St. Jerome, Archaeological Museum, etc.) and you will spend some time in the area, it is an opportunity to try pastries of pasteis de nata pastry pasteis de Belem (www.pasteisdebelem.pt) for which it is famous. The cosmopolitan and cuddly Ciado, the Carmo with the dozens of monuments, and the Baixa with the famous Da Liberdade avenue, along which you will find 19th-century shops and characteristic Portuguese architectural buildings, complement the must see neighborhoods of the city. The multicolored mosaic streets, where the black and white sidewalks, known as calcada portuguesa, combine with the azulejos tiles that cover the facades of many buildings, the bar hopping and the nightlife in Bairro Alto, but also all those snapshots that marked world history make Lisbon one of a kind.

What to see:

  • Tower of Belem

A monument from the Age of Great Exploration, built during the reign of Manuel I (and in 1515 in particular), to be part of the defense of the city. UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can visit the royal apartments, the chapel, the auditorium – but do not miss the magnificent view from the top (www.torrebelem.pt/pt/index.php).

  • Botanical Gardens of Edward VII

Urban oasis north of Da Liberdade and Marques de Pombal Square, rich in vegetation and fountains. Look for the cold greenhouse (estufa fria) with ferns and camellias, the hot (estufa quente) with coffee beans and mango and sweet (estufa doce) with the cacti.

  • Castle of Sao Jorge

It stands imposing on the top of the city since the 2nd century BC. century, surviving from the time of the Visigoths, the Moors, the Crusades, etc. Organized guided tours take place inside, at the archaeological site and in its museum (www.castelodesaojorge.pt).

  • Mosteiro dos Jerónimo

Since the Late Gothic period of Lisbon and the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983, the monastery hosts the Navy and the National and Archaeological Museum. There, in 1498, it was first announced by Vasco da Gama the discovery of the sea road to India (www.mosteirojeronimos.pt/en).

  • Elevador de Santa Justa

The popular Iron Lift, a work by Raul Messner (a student of Gustav Eifel), joins Baixa’s narrow streets with Carmo Square. To avoid the hordes of tourists, visit early in the morning.

  • Oceanario

The second largest European aquarium hosts eight thousand species that swim in seven million liters of water. Ideal for spending a beautiful afternoon whether you are with children or not (www.oceanario.pt).

  • Cathedral of Se

Built in the place of a Moorish mosque in 1150, in the Roman and Gothic temple temple you will see religious treasures and finds of archaeological excavations. Its imposing façade with its two towers is characteristic of several Portuguese temples at that time.

Excursions:

From Cais do Sodre station, the suburban port for the nearby Portuguese Riviera, Cascais, and the neighboring Estoril departs very often, which is an ideal excursion to the spring and summer months. Equally nearby and accessible by train from Rossio Station is the town of Sintra: the home of aristocrats and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is looking for the magnificent Palacio Nacional da Pena and the Praia Grande and Praia das Macas beaches.

What to eat:

Roasted sardines and sage dominate the local table during the summer and the feasts. There are often soups such as caldo verde (with cabbage) and sopa de alho (with garlic and bread) as well as chouricos (smoked sausages). From pastries, pudim (as a caramel cream) and small pasteis de nata (with egg cream) with cinnamon and glaze stand out. A favorite dish of local people, finally, is the handmade sweet bread with sugar or honey (massa sovada), which you will come across in many variations.
