Lisbon Shore Excursions

Praca do Comercio doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Praca do Comercio The royal palace stood on the spot occupied by the Praca do Comercio for over two centuries, until it was destroyed by the devastating earthquake of 1755. In the center of the square is a magnificent statue of King Jose I on a horse. On the north side of the square is the famous café, Café Martinho da Arcadia, a favourite of artists and poets for over 300 years. The classical building on the west side of the square houses Lisbon’s tourist information office, a very useful stop before a day’s sightseeing.

Miradouro de Santa Luzia doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Miradouro de Santa Luzia From the Praca do Comercio you can wander up the hill towards St Georges castle. You’ll be passing through the oldest district of Lisbon, the Alfama. Lisbon is famed for its ‘Miradouro’ or lookouts, spots with spectacular views over the city. At the top of R de Augusto Rosa, half-way up the hill, lies the Miradouro de Santa Luzia, one such place. After enjoying views from the terrace, relax a while at the nearby café before continuing your climb to the castle.

St. George’s Castle doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) St. George’s Castle Originally constructed by the Visigoths in the 5th century, St. George’s castle was enlarged by the Moors 400 years later. Today many structures of the castle are missing, due to the destruction caused by several earthquakes.

There is also a multimedia exhibition in the museum describing the rich history of the city.
