  • The official presidential residence consists of the five buildings situated on a hill close to the historical center of Belém. It was built in the 18th century, on land acquired by the King John V. It is a beautiful, relatively modest structure, best seen from the Alfonso de Albuquerque square.

  • Worth visit on Saturday, between 10:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The ceremony of the formal change of the National Republican Guard is held on the 3rd Sunday of each month, at 11 o'clock in the morning, on the front of the Palace of Belém.
  • Incredible place. Make sure you go in as it is underwhelming from outside, but outstanding interior with good info for only eur4! A real overlooked gem.
  • Nice place. Try to have the chance to see the architecture inside the palace by carrilho da graça
  • Amazing building. Mandatory visit
  • Be aware that this Palace can be visited only on Saturdays.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
