Belem Quarter and the Discoveries

Lisbon is a city of seven hills that form an amphitheater facing the Tagus River and create a link between the river and the city.

Feel the Tagus breeze on your face when visiting the main streets of Belém, the historic center and cultural icon of the city.

Located in the western part of town near the mouth of the Tagus River, Belém is a World Heritage Site for its monuments dedicated to the Portuguese maritime discoveries of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

The Belém Tower, Jeronimos Monastery and the Monument to the Discoveries are all masterpieces of Manueline architecture (which owes its name to King Manuel I) and are unique in the world. Soak in breathtaking views when you visit the Monastery of Jeronimos church, the Belem Tower, and the Monument to the Discoveries on the tour.

Also, enjoy a coffee break in the famous “Pasteis de Belem“, which serves up a delicious cream cake that is one of the best-kept secrets of the city's cuisine.

Discovering the Mythic Regaleira Palace

 In the mysterious and enigmatic village of Sintra, there is a hidden and even more mystical place: Quinta da Regaleira. Built between 1904 and 1910 and supposedly inspired by Dante’s “Divine Comedy”, Quinta da Regaleira is a palace with limitless enchantment. Explore luxuriant gardens that offer statues fraught with meaning, dark flooded grottoes where only the most audacious dare to enter, and secret passages with initiatory spiral wells sinking deep into the earth’s depths. In addition to the subterranean passages, we can also find the famous Poço Iniciatico—an inverted tower that sinks into the earth about 27 meters, symbolizing access to the center of the earth! The visitor accesses this well by a spiral staircase that aims to connect the sky and the earth—an unforgettable journey from obscurity to light.

Cascais – 19th Century Royal Resort

A departure to Cascais, where guests will enjoy a relaxing getaway. Elected as the royal family's favorite seaside resort during the 19th century, the cosmopolitan Cascais is adorned with beautiful mansions and traditional chalets. Due to Portugal's neutrality in World War II and the town's elegance and royal past, Cascais became home to many of the exiled royal families of Europe, including those of Spain, Italy, Hungary, and Bulgaria. The incomparable beauty of its bay, its green spaces, the picturesque streets, and the pleasant terraces is a prime example of the allure of a typical Portuguese resort.
