Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Escape the urban bustle at Praia da ursa and Guincho Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Belém Tower and Mosteiro dos Jeronimos. Step out of Lisbon with an excursion to Praia do Magoito in Sintra--about 42 minutes away. There's still lots to do: visit Alfama, make a trip to Elevador de Santa Justa, choose your vessel at Nosso Tejo, and steep yourself in history at Castelo de S. Jorge.

For other places to visit, more things to do, traveler tips, and other tourist information, read Lisbon online journey builder.
