We will visit the Jeronimos Monastery, one of the most significant buildings in Portugal, Belém Tower, Monument to the Discoveries and will learn a lot about this world capital.

After crossing the bridge over the river Tagus, the " Golden Gate" of Europe, we will enjoy the breathtaking view to Lisbon from the Statue of Christ.

We will also drive to the famous Statue of Christ- Cristo Rei- opposite of Lisbon.

In the famous Belém quarter we will visit the Jerónimos Monastery a World Heritage Monument (closed on Monday) and make a brief stop at the Belém Tower- world heritage by UNESCO (Torre de Belém), point of departure of some of the Portuguese maritime explorations, such as on the Monument to the Discoveries (Padrão dos Descobrimentos), built to celebrate the 500th anniversary of the 'death' of Prince Henry the Navigator.

A Recent Review of this tour

Had a great day with Paulo! We learned about Lisbon and Portugal from the moment he picked us up to the moment the tour ended. We gained a greater perspective of Portugal's history as well as seeing monuments and local sights. His recommendation for lunch in a local food market was a good experience. Paulo's passion for Portugal is evident. I would highly recommend him!
