Visit the top 5 most attractive destinations in Lisbon!

1. Palacio Marques De Fronteira
Built in 1675, the Palacio Marques de Frontera is among the most beautiful palaces in all of Lisbon and it was originally intended to be a hunting lodge, which belonged to Don João Mascarenhas.
Remarkably, the Marques family still resides in the palace today. Located in Lisbon’s Benfica neighborhood, azulejos with an Italian Renaissance-style garden effortlessly transport visitors to an oasis of Arab and Moorish influence while they marvel at their pure artistic brilliance.
This unique place is one of the most fascinating locations to see in Lisbon while travelling. You can pay to explore the grounds or have a tour of the palace upon request, it’s quite amazing!

2. Panoramico De Monsanto
The Panoramico De Monsanto, often known as the “UFO of Lisbon,” was formerly a luxurious restaurant that had closed its doors in the 1960s. Some claim that the restaurant’s eventual downfall was caused by the fact that it was too costly for the locals.
Five stories formerly made up the restaurant, which featured a 360-degree panoramic view of the city, an idea belonging to Chaves Costa. But it was only a restaurant for two years before becoming a municipal viewpoint. In addition, it has developed into the city’s center of the arts and culture, hosting numerous events.
Even though the building is now covered with graffiti, especially after dusk, it’s still one of the greatest spots to take in a 360-degree panorama of Lisbon. It’s definitely a must see on you bucket list!

3. Church of Santa Engracia
The Church of Santa Engracia has been around since the sixteenth century, taking on different shapes. Over the ages, structural failures and financial difficulties have caused it to change shape and go dormant, but even a curse couldn’t prevent it from rising once again to become the revered National Pantheon, where the most illustrious Portuguese are buried.
One of the richest ladies in Europe, Maria of Portugal, the sole daughter of King Manuel I of Portugal, funded the building of a church honoring Saint Engracia somewhere in the 1568s. It quickly developed into the spiritual hub of the Brotherhood of the Slaves of the Holy Sacrament, a strong religious group. It’s an experience well worth it.

4. Bordallo Pinheiro Garden
This garden is unique among others because of the large number of porcelain plants and animals. Here you will find huge porcelain sculptures by Portuguese artist Rafael Bordallo Pinheiro from the 19th century, featuring a variety of creatures, mushrooms, snakes and crabs. The garden itself is just as beautiful, featuring geometric hedge designs, a Japanese acacia that stands out amid the other trees and live peacocks strolling around.
One of the oldest towns in Europe and the capital of Portugal, Lisbon, provides visitors with a fascinating fusion of culture, history and important landmarks.

5. History of Lisbon Mural
Though most visitors come here to take in the magnificent view of red roofs and cathedrals stretching into the distance towards the Tagus River below and the mountains beyond, you might be tempted to walk on past the staircase that twists its way down the side of this lovely overlook on the Lisbon coast.
However, if you take the time to follow the directions to the public restroom, you’ll only go a short distance down the steps before you come upon a little tunnel whose curved archway is covered on both sides with muralist Nuno Saraiva’s comic strip-style depiction of Lisbon’s history.

Discover the most beautiful 5 attractions in Lisbon!

1. São Jorge Castle
São Jorge Castle, perched atop the tallest of Lisbon’s seven hills, is the most popular tourist destination in the city and, if not because of the structure per se, then probably because of its location, which affords the greatest views of both Lisbon and the River Tejo.
It stands where a former tenth-century Moorish stronghold had stood. The first king of Portugal, Dom Afonso Henriques, commanded a group of crusaders who took control of the castle in 1147. Portugal’s first king is honored within the walls with a metal statue resting atop a cylindrical stone plinth, or statue base.
