Continuing my tour of Lisbon’s eclectic neighborhoods, this post will guide you through the Bairro Alto and Belém districts of Portugal’s capital city.

Exploring Bairro Alto Neighborhood:

The Bairro Alto neighborhood is one of the most charming districts in Lisbon.

Designed in the 16th century with a grid-plan layout, cobbled sidewalks, and narrow streets, this working class neighborhood once housed ship workers, centuries ago.

Exploring Belém District:

Belém is approximately three miles west of downtown Lisbon.

The Belém district houses many important sights from Portugal’s Golden Age and was the send-off point for ship voyages during the Age of Discovery.

Most of the buildings in Belém survived the 1755 earthquake, so visitors are treated to beautiful and stately buildings reminiscent of pre-earthquake Lisbon.
