Lisbon was founded as a fishing town on the largest river in Iberia, the Tagus river and this river has always been central to its success. strategically placed at the mouth of this magnificent river Lisbon became the central point in the age of discoveries giving access as the main port for the ships to leave and return to Portugal. Many monuments have been built to mark each era along the waterfront.

From the center of Lisbon, north of the Praca do Commercio you can see the highest hill where Lisbon was founded by the original fisherman, Alfama. The Praca do Commercio is the most Central square build along the waterfront, it used to be the location of the palace of Lisbon which was demolished during the great Earthquake of 1755. The steps into the water remain.

The river

The city was built along the Tagus river. The river enters Lisbon roughly at Belem to the west and exits to the North at the new area of Parque das Nacoes.

Belem

The heart of the discoveries, Belem became the center of a flourishing city in the 15th and 16th centuries when Portugal gained much wealth from its new colonies. from the water you can see 2 of the main monuments remaining from this period, the Jerónimos Monastery and the nearby Tower of Belém.

Jerónimos Monaster

Alcantara

Alcantara derived its name from the Moors which refers to an ancient Roman bridge which used to be there. Now home to the Ponte de 25 Abril bridge which is the 32nd longest suspension bridge in the world.
Modern Alcantara is popular for its trendy nightlife and waterfront restaurant boulevard and yacht harbour

Praca do Commercio

The Praça do Comércio (commerce square) is commonly known as Terreiro do Paço which means Palace garden and until the earthquake of 1755 which destroyed the center of Lisbon, it was exactly this. It was fully rebuilt as a Pombaline square after the earthquake and celebrates the rebuilding of Lisbon after the disaster which almost fully wiped out the lower areas of Lisbon

Alfama

Alfama was the original fishing village which later became Lisbon, located close to the castle of Lisbon and home to some of its most impressive monuments. Alfama remained untouched by the earthquake and retains its original design. Narrow, winding streets climb its way up the hill. Its medieval structures remain and from the water the views over its historical heritage are impressive.

Parque das Nações
