Your tour begins at the grandiose Terreiro do Paco, a large plaza set on the banks of the Tagus River. Learn about its historical significance to the city—this was the site of the royal palace before it was destroyed by the 1755 earthquake. Heading west, pass through the vibrant, up-and-coming neighborhood of Cais do Sodré, checking out some of the city’s trendiest hangouts on your way through.
Cruise by stylish yachts in the marina before passing underneath the Ponte 25 de Abril, the iconic suspension bridge spanning the river. Arrive in waterfront Belém, where Portuguese architecture from the Age of Exploration is on beautiful display. Admire the Monument to the Discoveries, adorned with statues that jut out over the river.
Take a moment to enjoy the white limestone Gothic structures of Belém Tower and Jeronimos Monastery, both inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This is the perfect place to learn about Portugal’s imperial history and the vital role Lisbon played in the quest to explore the New World.
Reward yourself for your ride along the shore with one of Belém’s famous tarts—a pastel de Belém. Even this custardy sweet has a rich and fascinating history of its own.
