Essential visits in Lisbon

When you organize a trip to any place, you always make a list with the essential places you want to visit, either because they are the most typical or because they have some special meaning for you. Not everyone considers the same sites essential, although it is clear that each city has its own things that must be visited "yes or yes".

Today I would like to recommend you some of the most interesting places in Lisbon , those places that without a doubt you have to visit if you are in the Portuguese capital. Take note of what you cannot miss:

Santa Justa Elevator

An elevator built entirely of iron and that when it leaves you at the highest part you have spectacular views of the city. A very special place to see the city from the heights, unmissable if you like panoramic views and if you are a lover of photography since from there you will take spectacular photos.

Sé Cathedral

se cathedral
Lisbon’s cathedral is spectacular, and it’s worth a visit even if you don’t like religious buildings and monuments. Its marvelous architecture reveals the history of the city within its walls. It is more than 800 years old and was rebuilt several times due to several earthquakes that struck the city many years ago.


This is the name of the famous yellow tram that runs through some of the city’s streets. It is a tram of the old ones, of which there are not many left in the world, so you must take a little trip on it, no matter how short it may be. Remarkable are the two kilometers that it passes over the Tagus River, a marvel to behold.

Belem’s tower

It is one of the great monuments of the city, and it is worth visiting both during the day and at night as it offers two totally different perspectives.

Fernando Pessoa Museum

It is the house museum of Fernando Pessoa, the greatest poet and writer in Portugal and one of the greatest in Europe. There you will find his house as he lived in it, with his personal belongings, clothes and decorative elements.
