Lisbon: three city highlights

C&IT highlights three activities for groups in the Portuguese capital.

Sintra Myths and Legends Interpretative Centre: For those with an interest in history and culture, the attraction, which opened this summer, takes visitors on a journey into the mysticism, secrets and romanticism of the town of Sintra by means of its history, music and literature. Through set pieces, multimedia techniques and sensory experiences, reality and fiction intersect at each of the 17 points along the route.

Tram tour: The number 28 tram takes visitors on a ride to discover some of the city's hidden secrets. The journey starts from Martim Moniz, then heads in the direction of the Graça neighbourhood, past São Vincente de Fora Church, worth a visit due to its imposing tiled facade. Behind the Church is Campo de Santa Clara, where the Feira da Ladra market is held every Tuesday and Saturday. The route continues through Alfama, passing by some of medieval Lisbon’s most picturesque streets and squares such as Rua das Escolas Gerais and Largo das Portas do Sol. 

Medeiros e Almeida House Museum: The museum hosts the private collection of businessman António Medeiros e Almeida, and is decorated with chandeliers, gilt-framed mirrors and throne-like chairs. The collection is spread across 25 rooms and other ornate touches include wall fountains produced in bronze and brought from the Palace of Versailles and silver cutlery that belonged to Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.
