Top Attractions in Lisbon

  • Belém Tower
  • Standing alone at the mouth of the Tagus River is the magnificent Belém Tower. This 16th century fortification is often viewed as the ceremonial gateway to Lisbon, and as a monument to Portuguese maritime success.

  • São Jorge Castle
  • Looming over the historic centre of Lisbon is the Moorish São Jorge Castle. The sprawling ramparts that surround the citadel are featured in almost every photo of the city, and stand as an excellent symbol of Lisbon’s proud history.

  • Rossio Square
  • One of the most popular tourist spots in Lisbon is the beautiful Rossio Square, located in the Pombaline downtown area. Also known as the Pedro IV Square, this has been a place for people to meet, sit, eat, and relax since the medieval ages. The designs on the ground laid out by the cobblestones, the two baroque fountains on either side of the square, and the central monument to Dom Pedro IV, all make this a beautiful place to spend some time.

  • Praça do Comércio
  • The principal ‘Commerce Square’ of Lisbon, just off the Tagus River, is a lavishly decorated plaza with a fascinating history. The square also goes by the name ‘Palace Yard’ (Terreiro de Paço) as it had been the location of the main residence of the Kings of Portugal, the Royal Ribeira Palace (Paços da Ribeira), until it was destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. The history this square has seen, including the assassination of the penultimate King of Portugal in 1908, led it to be named a National Monument of Portugal in 1910.
