    Our favorite visit in Lisbon, really. The art is amazing and it was so much less crowded than rest of Lisbon. The gilded church was spectacular. Do not miss the third floor where the incredible pre-earthquake city panorama is displayed. We took bolt there as it’s a little outside city center. On the return we walked and stopped at the huge Mercardo de Santa Clara flea market (very crowded) and strolled through Alfama.

    Wonderful palace with so many interesting pieces of history and art. I was fascinated about every room in the palace. It was more spectacular than the Treasury museum. Worth visiting!

    We loved wandering around the different greenhouses. I really enjoyed that you could climb up to different levels and see it from a different perspective. I think it was 3 euros per person which I thought was well worth it. We visited mid-week in June and it was really quiet! It felt really peaceful despite being in the centre of the city.

    This is a stunning museum in the former home of an incredibly wealthy Portuguese businessman. The contents are exquisite and as it was incredibly quiet when we visited, we were able to have plenty of time to look round.

    as this palace was by guided tour only,i booked on-line and picked up my ticket on the day,lockers are also available for those carrying bags.there is no doubt this palace has a wealth of history but it was our guide whose knowledge was not only off the scales,he clearly loved his job and most of us picked up on this,which in turn got us asking questions and interacting with each other that made for a memorable experience and if you like tiles do check out the gardens.

    Before our visit here, we were only vaguely aware of the rise and fall of the Salazar era. This extremely well-curated museum lets you learn as much as you can absorb. Good videos and displays. We spent an hour or more and came away with a chilling, but sufficient introduction to the era. But you could spend hours more. We were especially appreciative of this visit on our last day in Portugal, which fell on the 50th anniversary of the Carnation Revolution. We had much greater respect for what the country was celebrating.

    Many say this is a place made for tourists and it is probably true. But it is also a very good solution considering what it was and looks very nice. We had a nice time there with great live music at one of the restaurants.

    Amazing! See the layers of history under Lisbon and the artifacts pulled from the rock. Sewers, bodies, ceramics, wells, and more are what you'll find on this informative guided tour. YOU HAVE TO BOOK AHEAD, BUT IT'S FREE!

    Ler Devager, LX Factory Lisbon: Having lived in most capital cities like New York, London and Amsterdam, I can safely say there’s nothing like this bookstore meets café meets record shop. It’s nostalgic, vintage, bohemsian and contemporary. Everything rolled into one. Previously a press factory (the old equipment have been left there which now becomes uber cool), it’s now where you get offbeaten titles and old records. Tourists and locals sniff their way in here and marvel at the amazing interior. It’s like ants walking up the metal staircases in amazement. Little wonder it was recognised by New York Times as one of the best and quirkiest bookstores. #eatstylishtravelstylish

    The artwork on the ceilings and walls is magnificent probably is worth going to see if you are not interested in military history. The artifacts, weapons and displays were very interesting if you do like military history. But, regardless, go for the building.

    Immense cemetery with a wide variety of tombstones, and masterfully crafted almost like little temples or homes. At first, was startled to see into them — many coffins of different ages, states of decay, decorative detail, and so on. But gradually became accustomed and really took in the details, like photos of loved ones and intricate stained glass. Go to the end for a view of the bridge. Also was there for the cats, but didn’t see any.

    Probably the prettiest park in the city, a manageable size, some gorgeous big trees and pretty flowers, lots of places to sit in the shade on a warm day, and lovely neighborhoods all around.

    This was really an excellent little museum. It is very well-done, with beautiful exhibits of puppets from many different countries. The building itself is also worth a visit — it is an old palace with a courtyard. Definitely not just for kids (in fact, I could imagine them finding it a bit dull). No tourists — we were almost the only ones there. If you have already checked off the “bigger” sights in Lisbon, well worth a visit. The surrounding neighborhood also charming.

    This was a wonderful, free museum in the heart of Lisbon by the Praça do Comércio. Their displays are informative, fun, and interactive. You're handed a ticket on the way in and you can use it throughout the museum to learn different things in an enjoyable and engaging way. I've actually been to other money museums in London and Edinburgh but I think this was my favorite.

    The Lisbon aquaducts were constructed in the 1700s and resemble old Roman aquaducts, which were copied. While not thousands of years old, they are still very impressive.
