Lisbon is a beauty in every way. It enchants people with its light, its fado, its streets, its effervescence and its innocence...
There's so much to see and do in this friendly old-world city that it's hard to enjoy it to the fullest in two or three days. However, considering that its main attractions are close to each other (except those in the Belém district), if you make the most of your time you will be able to do it. Discover the suggestions that we have prepared for you on what to see during a weekend in Lisbon.
Lisbon is a continuous surprise, romanticism in its purest form. It surprises at any time of the year, at Christmas, in summer or on the weekend... of the eight neighbourhoods that Lisbon has, five are unmissable: Chiado, Bairro Alto, Alfama, Baixa and Belém.Each one of them has a unique spirit, which is why you have to discover them by walking through its streets, breathing in its aroma with each step you take, looking from one side to the other so as not to miss any detail, immersing yourself in its cafeterias and pastry shops, in its squares, getting on its old but romantic trams, getting closer to its people and savouring its gastronomic delights...

Alfama neighbourhood, an essential in Lisbon
Who has never heard a fado? Talking about traditional Portuguese music is talking about fado and talking about fado is talking about Alfama. Lisbon, especially the Alfama neighbourhood, is one of the best places to enjoy the best fado and many restaurants offer a dinner + fado concert format.
It is a complete sacrilege not to get lost in the alleys and up and down the stairs a thousand times in the oldest and most photogenic neighbourhood of Lisbon, Alfama. Walking aimlessly here is like immersing yourself in the soul of the city.

St. George's Castle
On the highest hill in Lisbon are the ruins of the São Jorge Castle. The castle was badly damaged by the 1755 earthquake, but thanks to the fact that its restoration began in 1910 (along with having one of the best views of the city) it has become one of the main attractions of the city.
Lisbon Cathedral
Also in Alfama is the Sé, Lisbon's cathedral, said to be the oldest church in the city. The passage of Tram 28 through its façade is one of the most typical images of the city. Access to the cathedral is free, but not the visit to the cloister and the treasury.
