A walk in the Ribeirinha area is mandatory. Starting in Praça do Comércio until Belém, where are located some of the most emblematic monuments (how about a stop in the famous Pastéis de Belém factory?) passing through Cais do Sodré, which is the centre of public transportation. Moving towards Cascais or Margem Sul, we come cross with Cristo Rei that offers an amazing view of the city.
In the capital a must-see are also Castelo de São Jorge, Elevador de Santa Justa, Miradouro de Santa Luzia, Arch of Rua Augusta near to Lisboa Story Center – Memory of the City and Parque das Nações where EXPO’98 was located.
When visiting the city in April we do recommend the “Festival do Peixe” (Fish Festival) and in June “Santos Populares” are not to be missed. Lisbon is likewise internationally known by its summer music festivals. NOS Alive in July brings tourists from all over the world and it has been several times distinguished for its billboard quality and infrastructure.
