Things to see in Portugal
- Experience the wonders of gothic and renaissance architecture at Lisbon’s Jeronimos Monastery. Go to the Church of Saint Mary and see the intricately carved tomb of Vasco da Gama. While you explore the monastery and its churches, keep a look out for rope knots, floating spheres, algae, and other symbols of Portugal’s role in the age of discovery. Afterward, take a walk through the formal gardens and marvel at the mosaics.
- Go to the top of Alfama hill and tour St. George’s Castle. Stop its archeological museum and accompanying site and learn about 7th century BC Lisbon. Then tour the underground chambers and see the cannons. If you climb to the top of the towers, you’ll discover sweeping views of the river and the Lisbon’s Alfama neighborhood.
- Rent a bicycle and explore Parque das Nacoes. Grab your binoculars and pedal to the Tagus Estuary where you’ll find black-shouldered kites and Kentish plovers sheltered in the red beds and cork oak woodlands. Then browse the shops or go boating. Afterward, visit the sunfish at the nearby Oceanarium.
Although Portugal’s mountainous regions often see winter snows, Portugal is one of Europe’s warmest countries. For sunny skies and warm temperatures, plan your visit during the late spring and early summer. If you’re in Lisbon, take the metro to travel around the city. Other cities offer reliable bus service and trams. You can also rent a car.
