    The “city of the seven hills” has traditional neighbours with a typical sidewalks, Fado every night at small taverns, and seafood dishes that will satisfy your curiosity for local food.

    Lisbon, with its traditions, is so alive and its atmosphere is so relaxing that it doesn’t feel like a european capital. However, it was already an imperial capital with ties to the oceans and discovery, leaving us a landmark of an intensive maritime exploration. Discoveries have also influenced, among many things, architecture, which can be seen in Torre de Belém and Mosteiro dos Jerónimos.

    Beautiful, with a singular identity and close to the seaside, Lisbon is the perfect destination for a short-break, and with so much to see, Farol City Guides will lead you through this amazing city.

    Rua Augusta Arch

    One cannot go to Lisbon without contemplating and walking under this iconic city landmark. Located downtown, it was built to commemorate Lisbon’s reconstruction after the 1755 earthquake.

    Belém Tower

    This fortified tower played a significant role in the Portuguese maritime discoveries, due to its defensive role, and it is one prominent example of the Manueline architecture.

    Lisbon is even more charming in June, when the celebrations for its patron saint take place. There is the Saint Anthony’s Parade, weddings ceremonies, grilled sardines and outdoors events.

    Portuguese Pavement

    Walking on the sidewalks of Lisbon is a cultural experience itself. These traditional pavements made with stone design different shapes, from everyday objects to history.
