From the port to the city center

Jerome Monastery. The resting place of the explorer Vasco da Gama is a church built in the 1500s as part of a magnificent monastery. Its monasteries are considered to be some of the most beautiful in the world and it has been declared a World Heritage Site.
Tower of the Torre de Belém. One of the most beautiful symbols of the city of Lisbon is the Belém Tower. The majestic structure stands right next to the water, creating an incredibly picturesque view in the historical part of the city - Belene. Today the tower is a very popular landmark in Portugal. In the late 1980s, it was declared a cultural heritage site, included in the UNESCO lists and is under its protection.
Castle of St. George. The millennial walls of this castle offer a bird's-eye view of the city in the company of roaming peacocks. Inside is a small archaeological museum, and down the hill, there are several terraces with wonderful views of Alfama, the city's medieval village.
Gulbenkian Museum. The treasures of the East and West, collected by one person, are now one of the finest private art collections in the world. It includes works by Rembrandt, Rubens, Monet and Rene Lalique.
Park of Nations. Unlike the oldest districts in the city, this 21st century neighborhood displays striking modern architecture with the longest bridge in Europe as a backdrop. It includes a modern aquarium, casino and a wonderful waterfront.
Berardo Museum. The Portuguese millionaire has amassed one of Europe's greatest collections of contemporary art, which includes works by Andy Warhol, Picasso and Dali.
Monastery of the Mother of God. The only one in the world, this luxurious former convent is now a museum representing an antique art form (decorative ceramic tiles).
Church of San Roque. The most impressive monument in Lisbon is the Church of San Roque. It was built at the end of the 16th century by the Jesuits by order of the king in Rome. From there, the church was transported to Lisbon on three ships. The church houses four chapels, one of which was consecrated by the Pope in 1747. At one time, this historical monument belonged to the Order of Christ, which inherited the wealth of the Templars.
Museum of Ancient Art. Fascinating oriental and European art forms the collection of the Portuguese National Gallery. This is largely due to the Age of Discovery, illustrating Portugal's ties to Asia and Africa.
