“(Historical monument) São Jorge Castle and the Christian Conquest to the Moors: We know now that the wellknown history of Martim Moniz who was stucked in the door of the Castle is just a legend. Cruzaders had to report heroic efforts during the Christian conquest, when they were camping during 4 months until the moors left because of starvation. In fact, Lisbon was not liberated throught fighting and guns, even at that time. History showed that the mossanas were pacific people. Jews and Christians only had to pay an extra tax, but they use to work in the government and they did not suffered of starvation. They have been even more mistreated after the conquest, by the Christians. The mystic was only built to justify the need of conquest and the purpose was only to obtain recognition.”

“Lisbon's flea market is called "Feira da Ladra," often thought to mean "Thieves' Market" (in Portuguese, "ladra" is a woman thief) but it actually derives from "ladro," a bug or a flea found in antiques. A market of this type is thought to have been in place in Lisbon since the 12th Century, and the name "Feira da Ladra" was first mentioned in the 17th Century. The traders here are perfectly legal, offering everything from junk to unexpected treasures, around the Campo de Santa Clara, a square by the National Pantheon. The market is held every Tuesday and Saturday, from dawn to the early afternoon. There are small stalls, but many traders simply display their store on a stretched-out blanket. Hand-made artisan goods, CD's, books, clothes, coins, military objects, antiques and furniture are all on display here, so the occasional bargain is still possible.”

“The National Museum of Ancient Art is one of Lisbon's great cultural attractions, and a "must see" on any tourist itinerary. This is Portugal's national gallery and houses the largest collection of Portuguese 15th- and 16th-century paintings in the country. An equally impressive display of European, Oriental, and African art adds to the allure. The museum is set west of the city center within a 17th-century palace, itself built over the remains of the Saint Albert Carmelite monastery, which was virtually destroyed in the 1755 earthquake. Fortunately, the chapel survived and is integrated into the building.”

“Beautiful architecture's building. Open 7 days per week, you can always find art exhibitions and from time to time many concerts and play. The tickets are not very pricey. If you arrive half and hour before the show, sometimes you can get a 50% off sale:) There is a terrace facing the river, and a great restaurant at the 4th floor. In short, it's a beautiful place and amazing to spend a afternoon or an evening there. ”

“At one point or another, every bar-hopper in Lisbon has visited Pensão Amor, at least to see the bold decor, if not for the drinks and socializing. Once a brothel, it comprises different rooms filled with bright decor, cushy seating, unique art, and a dancer’s pole. There is even a ‘library’ filled with erotic books. The back entrance opens to Pink Street, but entering from the front entrance at Rua Alecrim is much more impressive – the front room is decorated from floor to ceiling in bright colors and shocking artwork (the ceiling is even a work of art).”
