Portugal Tourism Attractions


Whether you live in Portugal or you are planning to visit the country, there are several tourist attractions that should be on your must-see list. Portugal’s spectacular landscapes and cultural heritage attract thousands of tourists every year. Portugal has many reliable travel tours corporations including 4U2ENJOY so travelling from one city to another is quite easy. Lisbon and Porto are the two popular cities when it comes to tourist attractions. Both have their own unique landmarks and culture.

Following are some top tourist attractions in Portugal:

 

There are numerous stunning plazas in Lisbon. However, the grandest and the most important of them all is Praça do Comércio. Thanks to its arcades, sunflower yellow buildings, the statue of Dom José I, the atmosphere is simply magnificent. It won’t take long for you to stroll through the square, but you will instantly feel it’s thrilling history and powerful personality.

This is another great tourist attraction in Portugal and definitely one of the most emblematic scenes of Lisbon. São Jorge Castle is a hilltop castle that has a museum feel thanks to the ruins of the former royal palace, archaeological site spanning three diverse periods, and its clever camera that offers 360-degree views of the city in real time. Above all, the view is simply majestic. Looking at the Tagus River and the abundance of red rooftops of the city is one of the city’s most thrilling rituals.

Jerónimos Monastery was built on the site of an old church for the Hieronymite Monastery. This limestone-clad masterpiece commenced building in 1501 and took about 100 years to complete. Architecture nerds and history geeks will appreciate wandering through this massive structure. However, anyone visiting here is likely to succumb to the grandeur and staggering size of this UNESCO site.

The Ribeira neighborhood is one of the oldest parts of Porto. Sitting along the Douro river this UNESCO World Heritage Site is famous for its colorfully tiled and narrow dock-side houses, in addition to the iconic views of Dom Luis bridge. Thanks to these factors and many others, Cais da Ribeira is simply a must-see tourist attraction. Explore the warren of windy streets behind the riverside as well if you want a true taste of Porto.

Livraria Lello is one of the prettiest book stores in the world. It is also one of the oldest book stores of Portugal. The situation at this book store is a bit odd: on one hand, it’s an amazing book store in the city that sells English and Portuguese-language nonfiction, literature, and coffee table books. On the other hand, it is a great ticketed tourist attraction in the city.

The Fundação Serralves museum in Porto hosts wide variety of temporary exhibitions that focus primarily on modern Portuguese art. The art is captivating, but so is the minimalist structure of the museum, not to mention the surrounding farmland and sculpture gardens. You will surely enjoy spending hours wandering through the lush park area and looking at the modern art.
