Monument to the Discoveries across the park and Belem Tower. Millions of shops in a covered mall, small theme park with rollercoaster for children. Try to stay a night in the Castle Pousada, (Guesthouse) Very romantic setting.
But the restaurant is completely crap offering substandard menu of burgers etc and expensive. (Was there last summer – walked in walked out and ate elsewhere! Sometimes served in a chocolate cup which you eat afterwards. In the summer open air concerts in the castle ampitheatre, classical music, opera, Madre Deus a famous portuguese band in the style of Enya’s music do various candle lit concerts. Close by is Castelo da Vide about 4 miles another medieval town on that mountain range. Stay in a Pousada and spend 2 days between the two.
great views of the narrow cobbled streets no wider than the antique tram, past the castle and looking out over terraces and terra cotta tiled roofs. A bit like the Eiffel tower, get off the lift climb the rickety spiral stairs to the bar on top.
Watch out for pick pockets but brilliant photo ops.
Lively at night - visit a Fado house for dinner wine and live fado music. See the fresh fish being brought up onto the beach.
Art / photography exhibitions – recently had World Press Photo 2005 and a retrospective of Roy Lichtenstein. 17 – For a really good overview of Portuguese cuisine check out Trinidade in Bairro Alto. 20 – Gamblers will like Casino Estoril, slots, tables etc. Tours are in English and the wine tasting at the end is great. With a little wine shop selling their own products. Especially as a friend of mine was the commercial manager!
Many more things to do, I’ll list as I think of them. Arrive early leave late to avoid the crowds esp weekends and summer. Pretty town with great views and lots of decent restaurants. Nice to stay in the square drinking coffee in the afternoon watching the old people. 16 – Meat eaters should go to the original Portugalia restaurant Avenida Almirante Reis. Posh, expensive, I think there is a dress code but my wife won’t let me go so I can’t check for you, sorry! 1 - Sintra, for the Palace, (Which you can see from Lisbon on a clear day) Moorish Castle, gardens and beautiful village.
