Lisbon Uptown

The city of Lisbon is still recalled by its glorious past linked with the Discoveries. Centre of the spices trade and meeting point for people from all over the world, Lisbon was, in 1500, a cosmopolitan and dynamic city.

In this walk we revive this period in the monumental area of Belém, where the Monastery and the Tower remain two live symbols of that golden age, where the testimonies of the new worlds have inspired the dominant decorations of the “manuelin” style.

In this Walking Tour we invite you to discover:

  • D. Manuel, king of the seas
  • Vasco da Gama
  • Monastery of Belém, History and symbolism
  • Palace of Belém
  • 16th century buildings
  • Pastéis de Belém Royal Factory
  • Lisbon’s shoreline

"The mist lifts around the bridge and reveals Christ the Redeemer, whose open arms remind us that anything is possible. "
