Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Mosteiro dos Jeronimos and Castelo dos Mouros. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Belém Tower and Castelo de S. Jorge. Venture out of the city with trips to Cabo da Roca (in Colares) and Quinta da Regaleira (in Sintra). There's much more to do: visit Alfama, see the interesting displays at National Museum of Ancient Art, get great views at Miradouro da Graca (Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen), and don't miss a visit to Elevador de Santa Justa.
