Built on seven hills, Lisbon has experienced a renaissance in recent years, making it the cultural star of Portugal.
Get some historical perspective at Mosteiro dos Jeronimos and Quinta da Regaleira. Shop till you drop at Museu Calouste Gulbenkian and Rossio Square. Venture out of the city with trips to Sintra (Park and National Palace of Pena & Castelo dos Mouros). And it doesn't end there: explore the historical opulence of Castelo de S. Jorge, make a trip to Belém Tower, get to know the fascinating history of Avenida da Liberdade, and stop by Alfama.
