Leave the comfort of your tin and awake the explorer within you, in this itinerary that departs from the Praça do Comércio and passes by Cais do Sodré, on the way to Belém, from which Vasco da Gama departed to unveil the unknown maritime path to India. Discover and know how many of the great Portuguese navigators have casted themselves and the nation to the sea, transforming Portugal into the first global empire.
Hitchhike with our sardines, visit the Monastery of Jerónimos, the Belém tower and the Monument of Discoveries, and sail on unknown waters, between cinnamon and puff pastry, in the original factory of the Pastéis de Belém. We don't know the recipe of the famous pastry created by the monks, but we do have another secret: you won't have to wait in long queues to taste them.
Do not miss the Carriage Museum and the Marine Museum, and the Belém Palace, which is the official residence of the President, the Cultural Centre of Belém (CCB) or the Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT). And like any sailor, worthy of this title, have a safe journey back to the centre of Lisbon, viewing the 25th of April bride, and passing through the Lisbon Docks. Be a seaman: go and return, in under 120 minutes.
