Mar da Palha

Mar da Palha ("straw sea", word-by-word translated) is the given name to a significant area of the Tagus estuary due to the accumulation of straw and logs which travels with the tidal flush from the crops upriver (northeast rural fields), mainly on spring tides, and stay adrift on this area stuck by the confluence currents of secondary rivers.

Panteao Nacional

Originally a church, it was converted into the National Pantheon in which important Portuguese personalities are buried. It is located in the Alfama neighbourhood, close to another important Lisbon monument, the Monastery of São Vicente de Fora.

MAAT - Museu de Arte, Arquitetura e Tecnologia

MAAT is a cultural project for the city Lisbon that is focused on three areas: art, architecture and technology. A beautiful design project by Amanda Levete.

Museu da Eletricidade

Located in Belém district, the Tejo Power Station was a thermoelectric power plant owned by the Companhias Reunidas de Gás e Electricidade (CRGE – United Gas and Electric Companies), which supplied power to the city and entire region between 1909 to 1972. It now houses the Museu da Electricidade (Electricity Museum).

Padrao dos Descobrimentos

A stylised caravel seems to be setting out to sea, with Henry the Navigator in its prow. This is the well know Monument to the Discoveries. First erected in 1940 in a temporary form, it was reconstructed in 1960 to mark 500 years since the death of the Infante Dom Henrique (Henry the Navigator).

Torre de Belem

Belém Tower, officially the Tower of Saint Vincent, is a 16th-century fortification located in Lisbon that served as a point of embarkation and disembarkation for Portuguese explorers, a ceremonial gateway to Lisbon as well as to defend Lisbon entrance along the river.

Cristo Rei (Jesus Statue)

The Sanctuary of Christ the King is a Catholic monument and shrine dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ overlooking the city of Lisbon situated in Almada. It was inspired by the Christ the Redeemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, after the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon visited that monument. The giant statue was erected to express gratitude because the Portuguese were spared the direct destructive effects of World War II.

Cais do Ginjal

They say you have the best view of Lisbon from Cais do Ginjal. We tend to agree. An old industrial area long time abandoned and in ruin, is these days a popular and trendy place to visit and enjoy Portuguese cuisine.
