    Lovely pedestrian area, beautiful scenery and surroundings. It was such a hot day, the kids cooled by dipping their feet in the sea where there's a small sandy beach area.

    We came to Parque das Nacoes on a Thursday afternoon. The area was not busy at all. It is a nice and modern area in Lisbon, which has a huge contrast from the old historic vide of Alfama.

    The previous Expo site can be easily accessed with metro red-line, train or bus. It is also next to the Vasco de Gamma Mall and Oceanarium.

    We walked along the Tagus River and enjoy looking at the Expo site and world flags. We also took a cable car to see the river and the area from a different angle. It was such an enjoyable visit.

    We planned to go to Feira da Ladra, National Pantheon, St Vincent Church, St George Castle and Lisbon Cathedral on a single day. It didn't work on one day :)

    We came to National Pantheon after we visited the flea market. The entrance fee was 5 Euro. It is a bit expensive as I thought it was a church and it should be free of charge. It is no longer used as a worship place. Nevertheless it is worthwhile to see the interior and go to the terrace to see the city. You are not allowed to take picture until you pay the entrance fee.

    The interior of the building is stunning with lots of amazing design and stone work. The floor the building is made of stone / marble. It has a symmetrical design and many people put their smart phones on the center of the floor to take pictures. We were the same.

    We climbed a lot of stairs to the gallery and tried to walk around to see the interior. However, my knees felt weak because of the height. I walked about 1/3 around the circle and had to give up. We walked around the terrace several times for the panoramic view of the city. It is worth every penny of the entrance fee.

    Great place and one of my favorite in Lisbon but why do they let cars go inside. It ruins it a little. Good choice of quality shops, restaurants and bars.

    Ensure you go to the top of the monastery during your visit otherwise you will miss out on some great views. Very interesting tilework inside as well.

    Beautiful stop - a must see. The statues are great, but the map of the world is even more interesting. You're also close to a great many other sites. Make a point of getting over here.

    This is my favorite stop at the LX Factory, a very good bookstore with art inside. Everyone takes photos as the display and interior design is so unusual. Browse the books as well.

    So I was waiting in a very long queue, because the lift goes up and down very slowly, and whilst I was waiting a very kind homeless man came and told us that if you continue to walk up the stairs, the shop directly opposite has an modern lift that takes you to the top for FREE! Honestly I did not see the point in paying to go up an elevator so I just took the modern one and took pictures of the view and the outside and was very happy, but it's up to you whether you want the whole experience of going up the elevator and seeing the view appear gradually.

    Nice building. This is a major train station in Lisbon. Busy. I had a coffee in the Starbucks there which had a nice atmosphere and a good place to people watch. Definitely not worth a special trip, but if your in the area or plan to use the train there, then take a look!

    as the TA site says...
    Funicular railway that leads to the São Pedro de Alcântara Miradouro overlook and the chiado district above Lisbon.
    There are many ways to get up here - steps, elevators in buidlings, Santa Justa elevador...but one night we had a dinner near the top of the funicular so we took this as a kick. I think it was about 3.80 E each. You can pay the driver in cash. You can walk right up next to it, but it is pretty steep. It's a very easy to find site, right off the main drag Avenue Liberdade, not far from Rossio train station; it's an ancient trolley covered with graffiti. You know, it was worth it!

    Just reviewing to let people know this is accessible again as earlier reviews suggest it was closed due to covid. It wasn't very busy when I went, and provides a great view of the city and some interesting graffiti. Be mindful it is an empty old tower a good distance from any amenities by foot or cycle so water and snacks are a good idea for anyone not driving.

    Synagogue Shaare Tikva is the only Synagogue still open in Lisbon. Our visit was led by a lady called Gabriela who gave a knowledgeable and very interesting talk about both the Synagogue and Jewish life through the ages in Portugal.
    I was surprised to hear that at one time Jews numbered around 20% of the population the majority having fled from Spain at the start of the Spanish inquisition.

    Overall it was a most interesting and informative visit and I would recommend it.
    The Synagogue is Sephardi and still holds regular services including weddings, B'nai Mitzvot etc.
