Discovering our roots
Dotted with fairytale palaces and dreamy manor houses, centuries-old churches and cathedrals, imposing monuments and historical sites, Lisbon is a city fit for kings and queens. Dressed up in so many different styles – baroque, gothic, romanesque, pombaline and manueline, without forgetting the symbols of the great Portuguese Discoveries, these landmarks are a true live time capsule.
The stories behind these national treasures will astonish you, as will the impressive architecture that not only brought such a rich history to life, but has been beautifully preserved to this day, for the wide-eyed excitement and enjoyment of so many other generations. Bring your camera, your curiosity and your walking shoes!
