It was a battlefield for Phoenicians, Greeks, and Carthaginians before the Romans started their reign in 205 B.C.. Then came the Moors.

Travel through time in Lisbon with several historic sites that merit attention for their cultural significance. Probably the most iconic among these landmarks is Castelo de São Jorge (St. George’s Castle). Overlooking the Portuguese capital, the castle played a vital part in history, serving as a location of fortifications. On the other hand, the 16th-century Mosteiro dos Jerónimos (Jerónimos Monastery) is A UNESCO World Heritage Site commissioned by King Manuel I in 1501. A symbol of power during the Age of Discovery, the monastery was built to honour Vasco de Gama’s 1498 voyage to India.

Museums in Lisbon take you on an enriching tour. Housed on once-sacred grounds, the National Azulejo Museum features about 300 ornate patterns of glazed tiles that have played a role in the country’s cultural history. Meanwhile, the National Museum of Ancient Art highlights artifacts reflecting Portugal from the Middle Ages through the 19th century.

Lisbon is sprawling with art. One can see masterpieces by visiting galleries or just strolling around the city. Hosting the best contemporary artists, Galeria 111 is founded in the 60s by one of the biggest art collectors in Portugal, Manuel de Brito. Housed in the 1940’s art-deco building, Galeria Belo-Galsterer displays a variety of artwork from homegrown and international artists.

Walking around Lisbon is a feast for the eyes. Located at the outer reaches is the grand Palace of the Marquises of Fronteira. A majestic architecture with a rich history of Portugal.  Standing over the mouth of the Tagus River, Torre de Belém is a fusion of architectural styles from the Gothic to the Romanesque, including the Mudejar to the Moorish.

Aside from the landmarks, getting around Lisbon is an experience itself.  Hop on Tram 28 as it goes around the Old Alfama district, drop by Feira da Ladra and test your haggling skills for quirky trinkets. Then spend a lovely evening at any of the alfresco cafés in Bairro Alto or go to a club to listen to a fardo.
