Expo 98- Parque das Nacoes
Expo98 the site of the 1998 World Fair took place, now called "Parque das Nações", is the most recent district/quarter of the city of Lisbon where you can admire some of the most beautiful marvels of modern architecture (Vasco da Gama Bridge, the Oriente Train Station, the building towers of São Gabriel and São Rafael, Vasco da Gama Shopping Center, among others). Stops for photos and a visit to the Oceanarium (optional) voted by Trip Advisor the best in Europe and the second best worldwide, only behind Monterey Bay Aquarium in Monterey, California, U.S.A.
The oldest quarter of Lisbon dates back to the time of the Moors' conquest of the city (8th to 12th centuries). The panoramic views from the famous "miradouros" of Santa Luzia and Senhora do Monte are a must stop on our tour, where you can contemplate the wonderful sights of the Tagus River and of the city. We will explore the narrow cobblestone alleys and streets where the facades of traditional houses are covered with beautiful tiles, an Arabian heritage in the Iberian Peninsula. Also, it is here that "Fado", the Portuguese national song was born. Two other places of interest are, the Lisbon Cathedral (built in 1448) and the Church of St. Anthony, patron saint of lost causes and weddings, (built on the site where he was born). Visit to the Castle of São Jorge (optional) conquered by Dom Afonso Henriques (the first king of Portugal) from the Moors in 1147.
