Go Beyond The Popular Icons

Visit Cascais, a charming port about an hour away from Lisbon by road. It has beaches for adventure sports, seven golf courses, grand homes and a selection of interesting free museums. Sintra, a UNESCO site has many interesting points to visit but the park is a must especially for its botanical varieties and spectacular views. The medieval paintings in Vasco da Gama’s house in Evora are a must see. The Igreja Real de Sao Francisco (Royal Church of St. Francis) in Evora is famous for its chapel that is only for the brave at heart. In the Capela dos Ossos (Chapel of Bones), the walls and central pillars are covered with human skulls and other parts of skeletons with a signage that says, “Our bones that are here wait for yours!”
