With picturesque sights, sandy white beaches, cultural attractions, historical architecture, lively nightlife and warm Mediterranean climate in abundance, there is a lot to see and do in Lisbon. Families and solo travellers can choose from a plethora of options to create a trip of their choice. The vibrant capital of Portugal is a rich blend of tradition and modernity. Situated along the Atlantic coast, Lisbon is filled with picturesque settings and gives tourists ample opportunity to capture postcard-perfect moments. Rich in architecture and history, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Belém Tower and Jerónimos Monastery, are ancient wonders that deserve a viewing when visiting the coastal city. Also known as the Tower of St Vincent, the Belém Tower was built in the 16th century as a defence system and a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon. The Jerónimos Monastery is a mesmerizing structure built in the late 1400’s that incorporates intricately carved stone details, religious sculptures and Vasco da Gama’s tomb. Lisbon is as enticing in the night as it is in the day; its bustling nightlife offers a wide choice of reasonably-priced restaurants, bars and night clubs that also offer liquor in low prices.
