Lisbon’s greatest treasures are its historic neighbourhoods themselves. Rossio Square is the city’s cultural epicentre, home to the iconic Column of Pedro IV as well as a wide array of shops, galleries and fine restaurants. Alfama is the oldest district of Lisbon and is a delightful maze of narrow streets, which lead from the Tejo estuary uphill to the castle. Contained within this ancient district there are some of Lisbon’s most historically important buildings including the Se Cathedral, Lisbon Castle, National Pantheon and Saint Anthony’s Church. Belém is one of the city’s most beautiful districts and home to Belém Tower, the Jerónimos Monastery and many other stunning landmarks. Chiado and Liberdade Avenue, meanwhile, are Lisbon’s premier shopping districts and host a wealth of boutiques, galleries, cafes and other upscale shops of every kind. With new hotels opening all the time, now is the time to rediscover Lisbon. Vega, our DMC celebrate their 30th anniversary this year and they’d like you to be part of the celebrations.
