    City Break in Lisbon

    LisbonThe Capital of Portugal and the western most capital in mainland Europe. With its Mediterranean climate it is a perfect choice for a city break any time of year.

    It is one of the oldest capitals in Europe. The Castelo de Sao Jorge, which is on the highest point in Lisbon, dates back to the 5th Century and affords magnificent views of the city.

    There are several museums in the city displaying cultural exhibits such as ancient and modern art, costume and fashion and royal coaches.

    The Chiado is the place to do some shopping and afterwards chill out in one of the many cafes.Alfama is the oldest district in Lisbon. It is a picturesque area with small squares and labyrinths of narrow streets. It is here that you can admire the Romanesque and Gothic architecture of Lisbon Cathedral.

    Belém is the place where Vasco de Gama left for India back in 1497. His tomb can be seen in the Church of Santa Maria which is part of the Jerónimos Monastary, a World Heritage Site along with the Tower of Belém. If you just want to relax on the beach, visit one of the other towns on the Lisbon Coast such as Cascais, Caparica or Sintra (Praia da Adraga beach is beautiful!)
