Best things to do in Lisbon and sightseeing in Lisbon

Pastéis de Belém - Lisbon

Belem, home of the most beautiful monuments and sights in Lisbon. Most monuments and museums are FREE during Sunday morning. If you’re full of energy, rent a bike and ride it along the river. There’s a bike lane all the way through and the road is flat. You’ll definitely have a great experience.

At the end of Praça do Comercio, on its border with the Tagus you can see the location where the old Discovery Caravels landed with the goods that the Portuguese brought back from the new found territories overseas.

Casa dos Bicos - Lisbon

Home to the José Saramago Foundation, the Casa dos Bicos, whose name literally translates to the House of the Beaks, is one of Lisbon’s most recent attractions and a cultural landmark to the Portuguese Literature. It was carefully reconstructed according to the original plans during the early 80’s to become a prominent Lisbon exhibition centre, having been completed and given a proper eternal life in 2012, as the house of the 1998 Nobel Literature Laureate and international writing reference, José Saramago.

Restaurante Belcanto - Lisbon

Without question the best restaurant in Lisbon, Belcanto serves elaborated contemporary Portuguese cuisine. You should save it for your last night in town as you’ll want to remember this experience for a very long time! Chef José Avillez kick started a much needed revolution in contemporary Portuguese cuisine, when he presented bold Portuguese flavours in his dishes at Belcanto, granting him yet another Michelin Star just a few months from the opening.

A Brasileira - Lisbon

The Brasileira is one of the oldest and most beautiful cafes in Lisbon. It opened in 19 of November 1905 by Adriano Telles to sell genuine Brazilian coffee, an unappreciated product by then. This cafe is filled with a magnificent Noveau art décor, used to be the intellectual and artist meeting point in the early 20th century, one of the most famous being Fernando Pessoa, a Portuguese poet whose statue can be found at the esplanade. Here you can have a fairly affordable breakfast and refill your energies for a free walking tour.

Wine Bar do Castelo - Lisbon

What I like about this place is that it stays true to the country’s snack food heritage and also matches it with an extensive selection of Portuguese wines. Wines by the glass range from 4€ to 100€ and plenty more if you like and can’t pass on the opportunity to taste a 130 year old port. Particularly I am a huge fan of Green wine and tried an alvarinho and loureiro grape selection wines that the owner recommended, together with some cured cheese from Serra da Estrela and some Portuguese water bread. Everything was excellent, the wine, the food. The owners are very professional and friendly. I recommend it to all lovers of good wine, good charcuterie, good cheese and good bread.

Igreja de São Roque - Lisbon

Remember to keep your sunglasses on when you enter the Church of São Roque! Its inside is completely lined with gold leaf paint, from shrines, saints, walls and ceiling. One of the earliest Jesuit churches in the world, this wonder of baroque architecture is home to 12 chapels, a museum and an outdoor café, where brunch can be taken on Sundays. The best time to visit is around three in the afternoon when it is flooded by the golden reflection of the southern sun.

Chapelaria Azevedo Rua Lda - Lisbon

If Lisbon is a trip back in time by itself, then the Chapelaria Azevedo is one of its most prominent pinnacles, keeping close to its founding origins since its establishment in 1886. Quite literary the last bespoke hat shop in Lisbon; this centenarian boutique is kept alive by the same family and is already going on its fifth generation. It is quite interesting that the most interesting and attention grabbing hats are the ones made specifically for the female gender, however the shop only started to cater to these clients in 1988.

Tram 28 - Lisbon

Taking a ride on this Vintage Tram that crisscrosses the old town is a must do in Lisbon. It is a pleasure to watch the tram traverse the narrow winding steep lanes and bylanes of the old town. It passes the São Jorge castle , one of the main historical touristic sites of Lisbon, the famous viewpoint Portas do Sol and the legendary fleamarket ‘Feira da Ladra’ in Alfama, Graça, Mouraria and Bairro Alto

Cervejaria Ramiro - Lisbon

Simply put, Ramiro is the best seafood restaurant in Lisbon. It is 100% local customer based and long established “Cervejaria” (literally translated to place where beer is dispensed), with a buzzing ambience and delectable seafood cooked on the spot. What I love most about this place is its unpretentiousness and “no fuss” approach to seafood.

National Tile Museum - Lisbon

I have to confess that I am addicted to Portuguese tiles. Although the most elaborate examples were kept for the interior of the houses, these are in its great majority painted with a Lapis lazuli blue on a white background and are best reviewed as paintings. Lisbon has an Azulejo Museum of its own, that I strongly urge you to visit, as a complementary educational visit to the ones you find in the narrow back streets of the Alfama, Castelo, Baixa, Bairro alto, Chiado and Principe Real districts.

Tagus River - Lisbon

Stretching for more than 10 kms and majestically south facing, the Lisbon Tagus Riverside walk is one of the most impressive natural beauties that the city has to offer. In the last couple of years there has been an impressive development and refurbishment of the Lisbon Waterfront, making it one of the best water walks in Europe, full of trees, parks, plenty of open space, cafés, bars and restaurants for you to enjoy the fall sun.
