WHY SHOULD YOU VISIT LISBON

hostelskills

This time, HostelSkills Conference is traveling to Lisbon, a city that should be on everyone’s bucket list. Here are some reasons why you should be planning your next trip to Lisbon. Get ready to fall in love!

 

Belem District

The Belem District is located on the Tagus river, southwest of the heart of Lisbon. By the river, you’ll find the Belem Tower and the Monument to the Discoveries, just a few minutes walk from each other.

The Belem Tower was a defensive system on the Tagus river in the late 15th century. The tower was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 and included in the registry of the Seven Wonders of Portugal in 2007. It’s definitely one of the must-see places in Lisbon.

Monument to the Discoveries is just a short walk from the Belem Tower on the Tagus river. It was built in 1960 to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry the Navigator. The monument is in the form of ship’s prow with 33 prominent figures in Portugal’s Age of Discoveries.

Right across from the Monument of the Discoveries is Jerónimos Monastery. This beautiful Monastery, built for the King Manuel I of Portugal, is one of the most prominent examples of the Late Gothic Manueline style of architecture in Lisbon. In 1907 Jerónimos Monastery was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The Pasteis de Nata is a Portuguese egg tart pastry, originally from Portugal.

Pasteis de Nata were created before the 18th century by Catholic monks at the Jeronimos Monastery in the civil parish of Santa Maria de Belém, in Lisbon. When the monastery was closed, the recipe was sold to the sugar refinery, whose owners opened the Fábrica de Pasteis de Belem. The Pasteis de Belem were mentioned by The Guardian as the 15th most tasty delicacy in the world.

The streets of Bairro Alto

The streets of Bairro Alto is on higher ground than all the other neighborhoods in Lisbon, and they are really unique. It is also the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon. Bairro Alto is full of bars and restaurants and has an amazing nightlife. The famous tram 28, who is also one of the must-do things in Lisbon, brings you there. You need to allow yourself to get lost on these streets.

Baixa Chiado District

The Baixa district is the heart of Lisbon. This magnificent neighborhood is considered the downtown area of Lisbon and the main tourist district with attractions as Santa Justa Lift and main square in Lisbon, Praça do Comércio, Praça Dos Restauradores, Praça Figueira, Praça Dom Pedro IV.

Santa Justa Lift is a 19th-century lift that transports passengers from the Baixa district to the Largo do Carmo. This elevator is working every day, and it’s a part of Lisbon’s public transport. At the top is a  flat-roofed viewing platform and provides views over the Baixa district. This platform is one of the most romantic locations in the city.

Praça do Comércio is considered as the main square in Lisbon. Lisbon’s largest square is located along the Tagus river. There are traditionally painted buildings, a statue of King Jose I in the center and a stone, triumphal arch-like, historical building, Rua Agusta Arch. Square is also a major transport hub, many sightseeing buses start here.
