Come for Web Summit. Stay for Lisbon.

Praça do Rossio

Rossio Square is Lisbon’s liveliest square. Stop by Pastelaria Suíça – a shop where you can try Ginjinha, a cherry-flavoured Portuguese spirit. You have to try it to get the true taste of Portugal!

Chiado

The city’s Chiado district makes for a chic mix of small boutiques, larger chain stores, luxury brands like Hermès and quirky restaurants. Once the centre of intellectual life in Lisbon, you’ll still come across a number of theatres and museums in the area.

Praça do Comércio

Here you’ll find some of Lisbon’s most historic structures. Call into Café Martinho da Arcada – Lisbon’s oldest café and one-time haunt of writers Fernando Pessoa, Almeida Garrett and Eça de Queirós – on the north side of the square.

Rua Augusta

Possibly Lisbon’s busiest street, Rua Augusta opens up off Praça do Comércio through the famous Rua Augusta Arch. It’s the place to hit for outdoor cafés, street vendors and international shops.

Belém Tower

Built in 1515 as a monument to Portugal’s Age of Discovery, the Tower was the starting point of many of the great Portuguese explorations in the 16th century.

Museu Calouste Gulbenkian

Back in 1955, oil magnate Calouste Gulbenkian left his art collection to the Portuguese state – Museu Calouste Gulbenkian was established a year later. The museum houses works by Rubens, Rembrandt, Rodin, Renoir and Van Dyck.

Bairro Alto

Head to the Bairro for a drink in one of Lisbon’s Fado bars after a day’s sightseeing. Fado is a form of Portuguese folk music – enjoy it with a caipirinha, a cocktail made with cachaça, sugar and lime.

Ericeira

Ericeira is home to world-class sandbars and beach and reef breaks suitable for surfers of all abilities. The Ribeira d’Ilhas beach in the town regularly hosts a round of the ASP World Surf Tour.
