Belém / Ajuda

The monuments of Lisbon, which personify the age of the Discoveries and the country’s great maritime feats, can be found here. But contemporary, informed and cultured Lisbon provides it with company in this select area. So when you arrive in the city, don’t lose a minute in trying to find the most iconic architecture in the city.

When you arrive in Lisbon, you will find much more than just a city. The history is written into the buildings and streets and the epochs have left their mark on the major edifices. The famous Monastery of Jerónimos and Torre de Belém – internationally recognised as UNESCO world heritage sites – are not the only buildings you find when coming to this part of town. The Padrão dos Descobrimentos and Praça do Império complete the sensation of the grandeur of yesteryear of the Great Portuguese Empire. Walk amongst the monuments that recount the history of the Manueline style in an architectural setting that is unique anywhere in the world.

But these are not the only attractions in Belém, nor do they attempt to freeze frame Portugal at a single moment in history. You’ll also find some of the most contemporary structures that define the life and new architectural profile of the city. Grab a pair of trainers and discover Belém slowly, visiting its squares and gardens, monuments,  cafés, restaurants and discovering its own rhythm.

Add to all of these reasons for visiting Lisbon a riverside with green areas and a unique atmosphere, various marinas and sailing clubs, and a cycle lane in which the fresh air combines with the beauty of the view and you’ll find in Belém the place where you can enjoy Portuguese culture in its purest state. Provided you accompany it with one of the famous and delicious Pastéis de Belém, you’ll be on the right path to heaven. Which in this particular case is called Lisbon.
