Lisbon is home to both traditional landscape and contemporary culture – with warm Mediterranean weather gracing each limestone building. A prime sight to see is the Moisteiro dos Jeronimos, a monastery that dates back to 1833. The artistic detail of both the architecture and design has rarely been retouched and is a location pit stop not to be missed! Lisbon also features fantastic marine life with the Lisbon Oceanarium sitting at the edge of the water – Europe’s largest indoor aquarium totalling about 16,000 individuals of 450 species.
For a taste of the country, Portugal’s capital is renowned to be popular for all things sweet. The cherry on top is what Portugal is renowned for; the egg custard tart – Pasteis de Nata, served by Antiga Confeitaria de Belem. Hidden in districts are rows of freshly baked goods, a hot spot for locals as well as tourists where each are aching to get their hands on some of the world’s best pastries.
