Lisbon Coast: Travel and tourism

Vasco da Gama Bridge

Lisbon, the most visited city in Portugal, has enough sights in and around the capital to make it a favourite tourist destination.

Within a short drive, you can find sandy beaches and fishing towns, like Sesimbra, the dense vegetation of Sintra, with its royal palaces and breathtaking views over the sea and hills, or enjoy sailing along the Tagus and Sado river estuaries.

From the cosmopolitan holiday resorts of Estoril and Cascais to the wild coast around Cape Espichel, and from the sumptuous 18th-century Palace of Queluz to the calm and beautiful Arrábida National Park, the choice is overwhelming.

Lisbon itself merits a few days of visiting: the Tower of Belém, to remind us of the Age of Discoveries, the magnificent 16th-century monastery of Jerónimos (Hieronimytes), the narrow streets of the quarters of Alfama and Bairro Alto, with their moorish-like layout, together with its river views, animated cultural calendar and the most modern and stylish shopping centres make it an unique European city.
