Visit St. George Castle, including its surrounding quarter, and Alfama, Lisbon's oldest quarter. This city is linked with the heroic deeds of the Portuguese maritime exploration in the 15th and 16th centuries. This was the Age of Discoveries and the Golden Era of Portugal, transforming Lisbon into the opulent center of a vast empire. Part of the wealth from these expeditions was used to build magnificent monuments in a unique Portuguese style: the extravagant Manueline architectural style, best typified in Jerónimos Monastery. Some of these monuments can still be seen, especially in the area of Belém.
Lisbon has more than just monuments, however! You'll also visit the traditional commerce zones of the city (Downtown and the Chiado) with their 18th century buildings. In short, your tour includes all of the best that Lisbon has to show!
