About this location
The Central Portugal region
Lisbon, Portugal's bright capital, spreads along the north bank of the River Tagus, which meets the ocean here.
One of the few European capitals with both a river and a coastline, Lisbon has Praça do Comércio square as its main meeting area. The city has always been ready to welcome new visitors and to bid a fond farewell to those departing, something that was never more true than when saying goodbye to sailors at the time of the great Portuguese maritime discoveries.
This is why there are many important Manueline monuments shining in the light of Lisbon and its surrounding region, such as the Torre de Belém and the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. The modern leisure area of the Parque das Nações proves that Lisbon still maintains its close links with the river today. Here, for example, you will find the distinctive mark of Álvaro Siza Vieira on one of the buildings that hosted the last world exposition of the 20th century, dedicated to the theme of the oceans. In contrast to this, do not miss the picturesque mediaeval quarters of Alfama and Mouraria, above which stands the castle. This castle, matched by Bairro Alto on the other hill, leads down to the downtown city centre known as the Baixa pombalina.
Lisbon is also at the centre of a region rich in diversity.
Just outside the city are the seaside resort of Cascais / Estoril and the romantic hills of the Serra de Sintra, where the perfect bond between palaces and nature led to the area being classified as a world heritage site. It is the sea, the climate and the stunning nature that give this region its peculiar energy. Its many parks and nature reserves encourage visitors to spend time in the open air, enjoying the peace and quiet of a round of golf or the adrenaline buzz of surfing. Perhaps this is why Lisbon is a city that is full of life. Here people have an exuberant party spirit, doing things spontaneously for the sheer pleasure of spending time in the company of others.
Further north, in addition to Fátima - a world-famous pilgrimage site - the region has three key monuments that have been classified as World Heritage sites by UNESCO: the Monastery of Alcobaça, the Monastery of Batalha and the Convent of Christ, the former home of the Knights Templar.
Other key sites in the region, include the mediaeval town of Óbidos and Santarém, which in addition to its fine architectural heritage, is the centre of horse and bull-breeding in Portugal.
Travelling south we reach the River Sado and discover the beauty of its riverbanks. Its unique estuary, bordered by the beaches of Tróia, Arrábida mountains and Setúbal, is one of the most beautiful in Portugal. It's still possible to see dolphins swimming in the waters, but the estuary's greatest riches lie on its banks, above all in terms of natural beauty.
To end your day in the city of Lisbon you could experience the traditional and relaxed atmosphere of a Fado House. Or, if you've still got enough energy left, pop into the various discos along the banks of the river and dance until the early hours. In fact why not stay up until dawn and take in the day-break on the banks of the River Tagus, before enjoying a well-earned sleep?
A tourist region par excellence, Sintra is one of the most delightful places to be found in Portugal. With its extensive range of green bills with its crags - the Serra de Sintra - so picturesquely situated and offering stupendous views of the coastline with its impressive beauty, Sintra is indeed "a garden of the earthly paradise", described by Byron as "the most pleasing in Europe", it also includes valuable archaeological remains.
The three National Palace - Palácio da Vila, Palácio da Pena and Palácio de Queluz - and the various municipal museums contain important historical and artistic collections.
The tourist potentialities of Sintra also include winegrowing, of proven standard, the quarries producing marble (which for centuries have embellished various regions), its traditional confectionery and cooking and, of course, the fecund production of its handicraft workshops.
A picturesque former fishermen's village, with the ocean ever present, it offers places of rare beauty such as the sea, Boca do Inferno, Cabo Raso and Guincho beach.
Serviced by a highway, an aerodrome and a marina, Cascais is a village of easy access. It is cheerful, busy and offers excellent cultural and hotel infrastructure with pleasant terraces, bars restaurants and commercial areas.
Has been the havens of many kings and aristocrats exiled during the 20th century and is internationally known for its beaches, exceptional weather, baths, casino and luxury hotels. It also offers Tennis and golf resorts, swimming pools and a pleasant promenade along the sea between Estoril and Cascais that gives access to several beaches.
