YOU ARE HERE: Lisbon Region
LISBON REGION

The Lisbon region is the perfect destination for an intense and well-rounded trip.
Diversity is the region’s principal hallmark. It has extensive beaches ideal for sunbathing or water sports, luxurious and protected landscapes, fields used to breed horses and bulls, monuments classified as World Heritage sites by UNESCO, and picturesque rural landscapes.
The World Heritage site of Sintra, is one of Portugal’s most luxurious and romantic towns - that has served as a great source of inspiration for poets and writers

Estoril/Cascais - a privileged zone for lovers of the sea, golf and charm.

Further north, in addition to Fátima - a world-famous pilgrimage site - the region has three key monuments that have been classified as World Heritage sites by UNESCO:  the Monastery of Alcobaça, the Monastery of Batalha  and the Convent of Christ,  the former home of the Knights Templar.

Other key sites in the region, include the mediaeval town of Óbidos and Santarém, which in addition to its fine architectural heritage, is the centre of horse and bull-breeding in Portugal.

Travelling south we reach the River Sado and discover the beauty of its riverbanks.  Its unique estuary, bordered by the beaches of Tróia, Arrábida mountains and Setúbal, is one of the most beautiful in Portugal. It’s still possible to see dolphins swimming in the waters, but the estuary’s greatest riches lie on its banks, above all in terms of natural beauty.
