Lisbon Tips from a local

Posted: Tue Nov 25 12:18:19 UTC 2014

1) My favourite esplanade 

Is by a kiosk at Miradouro São Pedro de Alcantara and due to its location, for me is the perfect place for a drink or light meal; it is one of my favourite places for a sundowner, overlooking the castle hill. It is one of the best places to relax in the city. It stays open until late on Friday and Saturday.

2) My favourite local dishes

I have so many but my favourite local dish is ameijoas á bulhão pato, clams with coriander and garlic, a very traditional dish, and bacalhau á bras – cod fish mixed with French fries, onions and scrambled eggs. And for desert, or a snack with a coffee, you can't go wrong with the famous Pastéis de Belém a traditional custard tart originally produced at the Belém Monastery.

3) My favorite Pasteis de Belem place

For the best, head to the Antiga Confeitaria de Belém, where they have the original and secret recipe from the monastery next door.

4) The best thing to do when sky is blue and the sun is shining

Discover your own Lisbon by walking around the old quarters of Baixa, Chiado or Bairro Alto. Or as an alternative, go to Parque das Nações (former Expo 98 area), the newest and most modern quarter of Lisbon. This is where the biggest sea aquarium in Europe is – the Oceanario de Lisboa. It is definitely worth a visit. Go there via the subway as Lisbon metro hosts an amazing collection of modern and contemporary tiles underground.

5) And if it rains

Visit some of the many museums we have here. Some of the best are the Gulbenkian Foundation Museum, which is home to the best world collection of works by glass designer René Lalique, among others. The National Museum of Ancient Art is also well worth a visit and houses the finest collection of Portuguese art from the middle age to the 19th century. Alternatively if you're not into art, then visit the last Royal Palace occupied by the Portuguese Royal family – the National Palace of Ajuda.

6) You cant miss

You should definitely visit the S. Jorge Castle, from where you have a fantastic overview of the Tagus River and the rooftops of Lisbon. It is the best start for a visit to Lisbon. To get there travel by tram, the old number 28 is the best. You’ll start your ride at the Jardim da Estrela (a very nice Park with lovely garden (jardim) and in front of Basílica da Estrela, one of the most beautiful Church’s in Lisbon, and then travel past the 'Portas do Sol' and up the hill.

7) A local tip that other tourists wouldn't usually know…

Take a walk in Belém area visit Padrão dos Descobrimentos and Torre de Belém and then take at the sunset ferry at the Belem terminal to Porto Btandão and enjoy a seafood rice on the river shore, while enjoying the best views over the city.
