What are Lisbon’s most famous landmarks and monuments?
Castelo de São Jorge
Castelo de São Jorge is a must-see landmark when you visit Portugal on return flights to Lisbon. Fortifications have been located in this spot since 1 BC, but archaeologists believe people have been living there since 8 BC. This is an incredible place to learn about local history while holidaying on flights to Lisbon. There are two sections to Castelo de São Jorge: the Old Moorish castle and the newer Royal Palace. Walk along the castle walls, admire the fortifications, see artefacts excavated from the castle grounds, and admire the sweeping city views from Castelo de São Jorge.
Torre de Belém
Venture to the western outskirts of Lisbon to visit Torre de Belém. This waterfront tower was built during the Portuguese Renaissance and served as the embarkment and disembarkment point for Portuguese explorers. Its exterior is decorated with elaborate stone carvings, and there are six floors to explore inside. Climb narrow spiral staircases to visit King’s Hall, Governor’s Room, and a terrace with views over Lisbon’s Belém District and Tejo Estuary. A maximum of 150 people are allowed into Torre de Belém at a time, so you may need to queue outside, especially if you book return flights to Lisbon during the peak summer season.
Jerónimos Monastery isn’t far from Belém Tower, so you could easily combine the two into one day while holidaying on cheap flights to Lisbon. The monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of Lisbon’s best examples of late Gothic Manueline architecture. Jerónimos Monastery was home to an order of monks who prayed with Portuguese explorers before they ventured out to sea. Vasco da Gama famously spent a night there before his first trip to India, and his tomb is currently located at the monastery. Set aside some time to visit Jerónimos Monastery while visiting Portugal on flights to Lisbon to admire its intricately-designed cloisters and chapel.
