What is Pena National Palace
The Pena National Palace constitutes one of the major expressions of 19th century Romanticism in Portugal. This National Monument was built by the initiative of D. Fernando of Saxe Coburg-Gotha, who married Queen Mary II, in 1836.

calle from Finland wrote about Costa da Caparica 4 years, 9 months ago
Costa da Caparica is an 8km long sandy beach by the Atlantic ocean. It's only a half an hour bus drive away from the center of Lisbon (busses leave from Praça de Espanha) and is definitely worth visiting if you happen to be in the area and enjoy beach life. A mini train runs along the beach every half an hour and takes you to any part of the beach you like.

This huge aquarium is divided into four different sections which each present the flora and fauna of different parts of the world:indian, pacific, north atlantic and antarctica. In the middle of these sections lies an impressive 5000m3 aquarium which contains hundreds of different species including sharks and rays. The most bizarre creature in the tank is the sunfish (see picture). If you're not interested in the aquarium itself, you should still visit the area since it is one of the nicest parts of Lisbon.

For an authentic stay in Lisbon, rent an appartment in the Bairro Alto area. It is a feasible and inexpensive alternative to a stay at a hotel. We rented one through www.lissabon-altstadt.de, but there are other companies also. We had a lovely stay in a cosy appartment in the middle of all the cafes, bars and restaurants... The area is a bit worn out, but that's what makes it so charming. It may get a bit noisy at nights over the weekend, as this is where the night life is...
Take the train from Lisbon to Cascais. It is going to set you back less than 2€ and the scenery on the way is good. So it is well worth the money.
Cascais itself is really tranquil place. The fishing ships in the harbor are colorful and the cafes and restaurants are really cozy.
Walk from Cascais to Estoril is about 2km and it follows the coast line with beautiful views and nice small restaurants that serve fresh fish. Highly recommended.

This is a great place to enjoy regular Portuguese food and desserts. However, what is best about this place is that it is open until late - they close only at about midnight and you might still get something to take away slightly after midnight. The food is also very affordable.
calle from Finland wrote about Bairro Alto 4 years, 9 months ago
Bairro Alto is best described as the old town area of Lisbon. It's filled with bars, cafes and restaurants thus being one of the most feverish areas of the city. Despite the occasional drug dealers on the streets at night time the area seems rather safe. If you're looking for places to do some shopping, Bairro Alto is probably your best bet.
Cascais-Estoril is not cheap, but it is well worth a visit. There´s an excellent train connection to Lisbon (Cais de Sodre station). There are many well-preserved hotels from days-gone-by when only the very rich would stroll along the waterfront and take their teas at the Palacio Hotel.

First, take good shoes, not highheels. The ground is irregular, everywhere are small, discrete stones. You can take a tram up to the castle. It´s a huge castle. Take a walk around it. If it´s hot day, you can have a rest in the shade of trees. From there are very good views over the city, so take a camera with you!
HS from Finland wrote about Antiga Confeitaria de Belem 4 years, 5 months ago
This is a cafe and the place to buy those famous "pasteis de Belem" which are custard tards. So delicious, so you should buy many at the same time. Because this is the original place to buy pasteis de Belem, you have to prepare to queue for your custard tards. It´s not unusual that the queue can go outside to the street.
