  • The Plaza marques de pombal is a symbol of the city, but it's nothing special to do. Worth knowing for historical value.

  • As soon as we arrived in Lisbon our first visit was this Plaza. It is the meeting point for the sightseeing in the famous red bus City Sightseeing Lisbon. This square is on the main avenue of the city, Aenida Freedom.

  • Great place north of the city, starting point of the tour buses that ply the city (Gray Line). A beautiful statue of brands do Pombal who is the Lisbon Haussmann.

  • This whole area is lovely to walk around. Extensive grassy areas and nearby there are many restaurants. A great place to visit as long as its a warm and sunny day. Not sure its the place to be on a cold and wet day though!
  • Interesting monumental park above the city centre, surrounded by hotels. Nice to see.
  • At lisbon's heart, this big car Park has always available places to park the vehicle.

  • One of the expensives in Town.
