Things to do in Lisbon
Sao Jorge Castle (Saint George Castle)
The Sao Jorge Castle is a Moorish castle situated on a hilltop above the city of Lisbon. It is believed to be first built in 48 BC by the Roman Empire and subsequently remodeled and rebuilt by other kingdoms until the Medieval Period. One can travel foot from Lisbon to the castle via a vintage neighborhood called Alfama.
Ponte Vasco da Gama (or ‘Vasco da Gama Bridge’)
The Vasco da Gama Bridge is the longest bridge in Europe. It is a cable-stayed bridge built above the Tagus River and runs to a total length of 7.6 miles, including its viaducts. This iconic bridge was opened on 29 March 1998 just before Expo 98, which was organized to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the sea route by Vasco da Gama from Europe to India.
Rossio Square has been the main square of the city ever since the Middle Ages. It is also known as the Pedro IV Square. People gather here to watch bullfights and attend celebrations. Visitors looking to feel the pulse of the city should start their day from here.
