Alenquer is the third largest municipality of Lisbon’s district, being framed by the Serra de Montejunto, in the North, and by Monte Redondo and Serra da Ota hill tops in the South. Its name comes from 'Alen Ker', meaning 'the willingness of Alão', referring to the alano dog, a breed of hunting and combat dogs, which is still present in the village’s coat of arms. Its privileged location was coveted by invaders since ancient times, being discovered not only archaeological remains, but also legends and varied traditions. We can, for example, find some fossils of prehistoric animals between Carregado and Cadafais.

The castle of the village also tells us a little of the history of the village: built by the Alans, it was refurbished by the Arabs and later rebuilt by Dom Afonso Henriques. It received the town charter in 1212 by the hand of infanta Dona Sancha, daughter of Dom Sancho I. One of the illustrious sons of the land is Damião de Góis, a Portuguese historian that deeply marked the Renaissance in Portugal. His tomb, classified as a national monument, can be visited in Igreja de São Pedro chapel, in Alenquer. To accompany its famous wines, in Alenquer you can find culinary delights, such as the bacalhau à Adega, the sarrabulho (kind of pork stew), the broa de mel (honey cornbread) and the argolas (fried sweets made with anise).


Lisbon District stretches along the Atlantic coast of south-central Portugal. Lisbon, Portugal’s capital, is a hilly city known for its cafe culture and soulful fado music. From imposing São Jorge Castle, the view encompasses the old city’s pastel-colored buildings and the Tagus Estuary, a habitat for migratory birds. The small towns of Estoril and Cascais, west of Lisbon, are known for their south-facing beaches.

Seven cinematic hillsides overlooking the Rio Tejo cradle Lisbon’s postcard-perfect panorama of cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals, a captivating scene crafted over centuries. Lisbon emerged as one of Europe’s top tourist destinations in the last decade. With its cobbled alleys, soft color palette, Unesco-listed heritage sites and white-domed cathedrals it has also drawn a flux of new residents all seduced by its beauty and balmy weather.

Hipster cafés may be replacing the timeless mom-and-pop corner stores in some neighborhoods, but there is plenty of uniquely wonderful Lisbon to experience if you know where to look. Legend has it that Lisbon, like Rome, was built upon seven hills. The city – reputed to be Europe’s second-oldest capital, after Athens – has mushroomed since its founding some 2700 years ago, and now covers many more than just seven hills, meaning that there are plenty of vantage points to take in the views. Known as miradouros in Portuguese, these spots dot the historical center, affording stunning vistas of this pastel-hued metropolis and the mighty Tagus River along its southern edge.

Local favorite miradouros include São Pedro de Alcâtara, a postage-stamp-sized garden in the trendy Príncipe Real neighborhood where you can soak in the view while sipping a glass of rosé, and, directly across town, the Miradouro da Graça that looks out over the nearby Castelo de São Jorge, the ruins of an 11th-century Moorish palace.

For picture-perfect panoramic views similar to what’s on offer at the Elevador Santa Justa (a turn-of-the-20th-century public transit project linking the central Baixa neighborhood with its hilltop neighbor, the aptly named Bairro Alto, or ‘high neighborhood’) head to TOPO, a terrace bar on the top floor of a shopping center off the fast-gentrifying Martim Moniz Square. The best time to visit is sunset, when Lisbon’s hallmark golden light illuminates the Castelo de São Jorge.

One of Lisbon’s few must-see sights is Belém’s undisputed architectural show-stopper, the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos. Time your visit for early or late in the day if you want to avoid the crowds photographing the stunning honey-stone Manueline cloisters inside this Unesco-listed 1495 monastery. On the nearby riverfront, another UNESCO-listed Belém signature sight is the Torre de Belém. This chess-piece-like fortress epitomizes the Age of Discovery and the tower top rewards stair-climbers with sublime views over the Tagus. When you’re done with sightseeing, cocktails and pomegranate-pink sunsets await down by the river.
