Districts We Visit

Baixa

Baixa is the bustling heart of Lisbon, a district that beautifully showcases the city's resilience and architectural splendour. This area was completely rebuilt after the devastating earthquake of 1755 and serves as a testament to Lisbon’s spirit.

  • Rossio Square: Discover the story of the great earthquake of the 18th century that destroyed the old city and how it was rebuilt into the Lisbon we see today. This square boasts dynamic life, surrounded by cafes and shops that boost the vivid atmosphere. Admire the beautiful paving, a stunning example of Portuguese craftsmanship.
  • Restauradores Square: Admire the Obelisk commemorating the Restoration of Portugal’s independence from Spain in 1640. This historic square marks an incredibly important moment in Portuguese history and is lined with beautiful buildings that reflect the architectural style of the time. Take a moment to appreciate the blend of history and modern life here.
  • Rossio Central Station: Marvel at the Neo-Manueline architecture of this historic train station. The station’s façade is a stunning example of Portuguese architecture, with intricate details that tell stories of the past. Inside, the station is a gateway to other parts of Portugal, with many travellers and daily commuters.
Chiado

Chiado is an elegant neighbourhood known for its artistic and cultural heritage. This district is filled with unique charm and offers a glimpse into Lisbon’s literary and intellectual past.

  • Carmo Square: Discover the site of the 1974 Carnation Revolution, where Portugal’s old dictatorial regime fell. This square is a peaceful spot today, but it is widely recognised for diverse memories of a significant moment in Portuguese history. Just feel the atmosphere and reflect on the importance of this place.
  • Chiado Neighborhood: Admire old cafés, boutiques, theatres, and bookstores, soaking in the artistic atmosphere. Chiado is where Lisbon’s intellectuals and artists have gathered for centuries, and its streets are known for the presence of charming stories and sources of inspiration. Visit some of the historic cafes and soak with the creative energy that is still here.
  • Pastel de Nata: Enjoy a typical Portuguese pastry, the famous custard tart, at a local café. This treat, with its creamy filling and flaky crust, is a must-try when sightseeing in Lisbon. Just order a cup of your favourite coffee for a true taste of Lisbon’s culinary delights.
Alfama

Alfama is the oldest district in Lisbon, a place where history and tradition are deeply ingrained in its narrow streets and alleys. This area offers a journey back in time, with its Moorish influences and old-world charm.

  • Alfama’s Maze: Walk through the narrow alleyways and small squares that give this Moorish neighbourhood its unique charm. Each turn reveals a new sight, from colourful tiles to lovely houses. The labyrinth-like streets are a true pleasure to explore, offering surprises at every corner.
  • Fado Museum: Learn about Fado, Portugal’s own musical genre, and check out some of the gorgeous Fado restaurants. Fado music is an essential part of Lisbon’s cultural heritage, and this museum provides insight into its origins and significance. Experience the soulful melodies that tell stories of love, loss, and true bonds.
