The most charming and stunning attraction in Lisbon is the Jerónimos Monastery (Hieronymites Monastery). Once, it was washed by the waters of Restelo harbor, and now it’s a beautiful park-square. It was the place where the ships of the renowned Vasco da Gama left for their far-away sea adventures.
Belem Tower is one of the most beautiful symbols of the city of Lisbon. This majestic construction stands by the water creating an unbelievably picturesque view in the historic part of the town called Belem.
The magnificent Church of Santa Engrácia in the baroque style is considered to be one of the most beautiful attractions in Lisbon and, perhaps, the one that took the longest time to be constructed. During the dictatorship of António de Oliveira Salazar, the church received the status of the National Pantheon.
The National Sanctuary of Christ the King in Portugal known as Cristo Rei is located in the city of Almada, 7 km away from Lisbon. The figure of Jesus Christ with outstretched arms can be seen from all the corners of the capital within the range of 20 km.
