Lisbon

Lisbon

Lisbon basks in the sun reflecting off the Tejo River and quickly seduces most visitors. The mixture of history and modernity, of small town and metropolis, of the antiquated and the shining new is irresistible. Add excellent shopping, late but safe nightlife and restaurants with Europe’s best fish, and you have Lisbon in a nutshell.

São Jorge Castle

São Jorge Castle is one of the oldest structures in Lisbon. This was once a fortress (taken from the Moors in 1147), and now a must-see landmark with a fantastic view of the city.

Address
Castelo de São Jorge, Lisbon
Jerónimos Monastery

In Belém, situated west of the city along the river, lies Lisbon’s and possibly Portugal’s most important historical monument. Here you can see an opulent church and cloistered garden built in the elegant Manuelian style at the beginning of the 16th century when Portugal was a great seafaring power. There are several other sights close by.

Praça do Império, Lisbon
Eleven

Eleven is one of the most sophisticated places that Lisbon can offer, featuring a sculpture by Joana Vasconcelos in the entrance and the post-modernistic box at the top of Eduardo VII Park. The cuisine is supervised by Joachim Koerper, who has been awarded prizes by Guide Rouge and who has all of Iberia as his territory.

Address
Rua Marquês de Fronteira, Jardim Amália Rodrigues 1070, Lisbon
Bica Do Sapato

This trendy restaurant lives well on the fact that John Malkovich is one of the owners, but it is worth a visit even when he is not there. It is a retro-decor harbour warehouse with a dining room, bar, sushi department and a small pavement café. Excellent Portuguese and international cuisine is served here.
