Lisbon is a metropolis with two million inhabitants, located on the Atlantic coast at the end of the Tagus estuary, the same river which is called Tago Castile.

For visits, I had Lisboa Viva card as underground and surface transport but must be loaded with either a ticket or round trip times for a whole day. At Oceanarium there is also a card that you have access to: a round-trip gondola, visit the Oceanarium, visit the museum of Science and Knowledge

Places you don’t want to miss:

  1. Cristo Rei statue – the copy of the Rio de Janeiro statue - Reach it by crossing the bridge 2 km long, suspended over the Tejo .
  2. Oceanarium - is the largest in Europe and second in the world after the one in Osaka. Carried out on a five oceanographic basins (Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic and Antarctic) exposes a huge space flora and fauna everyone. It's about 15,000 different species of underwater creatures.
  3. Praca do Comercio is the most famous square of the city
  4. Igreja Santa Maria Major shocks the crowd styles: reminiscences Romanesque, Gothic, Manueline all gathered in a stunning building and contradictory
  5. Castle of San Jorge shows century Roman ruins and others during the Moorish occupation
  6. The Discoverers Monument was built in 1960 as a tribute to a great navigator Enrich
  7. Jeronimos Monastery - monastery is a museum part of UNESCO

  • The metro costs 1.25 euro / one way, or 5 euro / all day
  • Columbo Mall - which is near the stadium Bemficai and has direct access to the subway station.

  • At an average restaurant a menu cost 7-8 euro
  • Appetizers brought to the table, carefully, are not for free, you will pay it if you eat them
  • Take comfortable shoes, streets are full of soft stones….

Sintra is a palace in itself: a huge park with many palaces, in fact. Here are the National Palace of Sintra, Regaleira Palace, Moorish Castle, Pena National Palace, and still others.

Some information is not accurate. Lisbon has only 650.000 ihnabitants. The river is called Tejo and nobody calls it "Tago Castile"...this name does not even exist. The metro costs 1.40+0.50cts for the card and the daily ticket 6.00€+050cts for the card.
