Cool and creative Bairro Alto

Bairro Alto in the south of the city is a bohemian hub – a place where you’ll find great local music and a laidback, cultured atmosphere. Here you’ll find creative and quirky local shops – many painted in pastel colours.

Make sure you catch the sunset from the Santa Catarina viewing point overlooking the River Tagus and head to the Church of Sao Roque. Here, a minimal exterior gives way to the most ornate interior, built with ivory, gold and agate. The adjoining Museum of Sacred Art exhibits historic sculptures, jewellery and paintings.

Dining in style

Lisbon has numerous Michelin star restaurants across the city and there’s plenty of world-class cuisines to taste.

Keep your eye out for many beloved Portuguese dishes as you travel around the city. Bacalhau (dried and salted cod) is served at most restaurants and is much more delicious than it sounds. Lisbon’s seaside location means that seafood is served in copious amounts and at the cheapest prices. Pastel de nata, Portuguese custard tart, is the local sweet dish – best eaten straight from the oven of a local bakery and topped with a dusting of cinnamon.
