Lisbon and the Alentejo

From £1,140 per person*

Evora Square, Alentejo

Enquire Online7 Nights

Lisbon is probably the least known of the European capitals but is one of the most interesting and intriguing. In the 18th century there was an enormous earthquake which all but destroyed the old city and the architecture you see now dates from that time, though traces of the old buildings can still be seen in the Alfama district, which is medieval and Moorish. Lisbon is built on seven hills and has splendid views over the whole city that can be had from the old Moorish castle of São Jorge. This is a compact city, easily walkable with good restaurants and plenty to see and do.
