Venue

Lisbon is a port of call and a gate way to new adventures, a meeting point for different people and cultures.

Likely founded by Phoenicians, the city was built during a millenium of colourful history waiting to be discovered by visitors. Lisbon witnessed Muslim domination, a Christian conquest, a golden age of discoveries, destruction by an earthquake and followed by an enlightened reconstruction process and ongoing renewal.

Lisbon is a patchwork of distinct and colourful quarters that beckon to be visited and experienced.

Accept the challenge of discovering LISBON.

Baixa/Chiado

Rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake, the downtown area called Baixa entices visitors to stroll along its wide avenues and to shop at the numerous and mostly traditional retailers. Further up, at Chiado, you’ll find a cultural hub in the form of theatres, bookshops, shops, art schools and historic cafés, including the famous Brasileira coffee shop.

Bairro Alto /Cais do Sodré

Bairro Alto is a neighbourhood open to the world, to diversity, to the joy of life. The streets are filled with people from all over the world, of all ages, creeds and styles, all with a common goal: To socialise.

After warming one’s soul it’s worth descending to Cais do Sodré, where the partying goes on.

During the day, a different life wakes up the neighbourhood. Shops selling art and alternative fashion, design ideas, music stores and international brands, second-hand items, hairdressers, and so much more.

Bairro Alto is an inspirational place, a way of life breathing bohemia, poetry – Lisboa in one word!

Alfama /Castelo /Mouraria

The Castle of S. Jorge is surrounded by Lisbon’s oldest and most typical quarters. After wandering through the streets with a distinctly Arab and Medieval atmosphere, there’s no better way to end the day than at a Fado house where you can dine while listening to this centuries-old Portuguese music – Fado was declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, by Unesco.

Belém

We invite you to discover Belém, the starting point of the epic Discoveries, over 500 years ago.

One of the vestiges exemplifying the magnitude of the quest to conquer, the Jerónimos Monastery, is among the most beautiful monuments of the capital. Another is Belém Tower, a majestic example of Manueline architecture. Both monuments are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

No to be missed – the Belém Cultural Centre.

 

Avenida da Liberdade

This avenue, one of the city’s most elegant and bustling areas, lies between the squares of Praça dos Restauradores and Praça Marquês de Pombal. Built in the late 19th century in a style inspired by Champs-Élysées, Avenida da Liberdade is a mecca for shops featuring top national & international brand names, hotels, outdoor cafés and restaurants.

Parque das Nações

Welcome to Modern Lisbon, a contemporary city!

Rebuilt from the ground up for the Lisbon International Exposition – Expo 98 – Parque das Nações is now a new and vibrant centre with a wide variety of attractions. With a prime location just 5 minutes distance from Lisbon´s International Airport and site to the magnificent Oriente Station. This riverside quarter is a world of its own, waiting to be discovered, including various venues for events as well as the Lisbon Oceanarium, the Knowledge Pavilion, a casino and many bars and restaurants.
