The statue of the Santuário do Cristo-Rei, one of the most emblematic monuments of the 20th century, can be found in Almada. Built in 1959, it is 110 metres high and offers a unique view over the capital and the Tagus estuary. Inspired by the Cristo Redentor monument in Rio de Janeiro, the figure of Christ opens its arms to Lisbon and receives hundreds of tourists, as well as pilgrims. The Costa de Caparica, one of the most popular beach destinations in the region, can be found on what is known by the people of Lisbon as "the other side" or the "south bank".
More than 13 kilometres of excellent beaches wait to receive those who love the sun and the sea. In Caparica you can also find the Convento dos Capuchos, a 16th century Franciscan monastery that has several interesting and admirable details, and is an excellent spot for a walk.
There is a monument in Lisbon that will make you wonder what side of the Atlantic you are actually on.
But don’t be deceived, you really are in Lisbon and the Christ the King monument on the south bank of the river is not the one in Rio de Janeiro.
The view from it of the city is equally impressive. The monument was built by means of the fundraising efforts of Portuguese children over a period of 19 years – and through the commitment of the episcopacy based on an idea proposed by Cardinal Cerejeira in 1934.
The monument, which was erected in thanks of the peace which Portugal was granted during the 20th century, was inaugurated on 17 May 1959 and provides one of the most beautiful views of Lisbon.
Come and see for yourself.
Just a few minutes from Lisbon are the 15 km of beaches at Costa da Caparica. It’s very easy to get there by car, crossing the bridge or catching one of the buses from Praça de Espanha or Campo Grande. And when you get here, the best thing is probably to jump on the mini-train that stops at all the beaches from the centre going south, which vary in mood and crowd. The beaches in the centre are the busiest, while those further away are popular with those who want to spend the whole day on the sand or sun loungers. Going north, you’ll find the calmer S. João beach. All the beaches share the fact of having excellent bars and restaurants where you can order a jar of sangria, grilled fish and a plate of clams. See if the beach doesn’t taste better that way.
