Lisbon is a capital of unknown secrets tucked away within the city’s lost luster. Once a thriving city of trade and commerce, its reputation went into a snooze for much of the 20th century. However, today Lisbon greets travelers with a renewed passion to unveil its hidden jewels that certainly make the city shine. Illustrious locations to visit are the National Coach Museu, Jerónimos Monastery, the Castle of St. George and the Alfama, Lisbon’s most illustrative quarter where houses are tightly packed in proximity against each other and canary cages still adorn the streets.
The Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga and the Museu da Fundação Calouse Gulbenkian are two noted museums to visit. Also to look for, is the Barrio Alto quarter whereits narrow cobblestone streets lined with antique buildings will give you an authentic look and feel of the Lisbon of yesteryears.
For photo opportunities from the heights make sure to drive your Lisbon car hire vehicle to visit the Santa Justa elevator and stop by the Fundação Ricardo Espírito Santo to see how reproductions of antiques are made and books being gold-leafed. Certainly, the city offers many sights and an unimaginable amount of churches to visit, if you had to pick just one don’t miss one of the oldest churches in Lisbon, Santo Estevão, constructed in the 13th century and located on Largo de Santo Estevão, where you can also get a breath-taking view of the Alfama.
