The MUDE museum celebrates design and fashion with a collection of 2500 pieces. Fashion lovers will not want to miss haute couture from the 1930s and 1940s, street fashion from the 1960s and brands from the 1990s.
Discover Lisbon’s unique history interactively at Lisbon Story Center. The museum takes its visitors on a journey through the city’s history from its foundation to modern times.
The Elevador de Santa Justa is Lisbon’s only public vertical lift connecting the downtown Baixa to the upper Carmo. At the very top of the tower, a viewpoint offers great views over Lisbon and the River Tejo.
Connecting Largo do Calhariz and Rua de São Paulo, the nineteenth century funicular, ascends one of Lisbon’s steepest hills, crossing the Bica district and leading up to the Bairro Alto neighbourhood.
With seven hills overlooking the large estuary of the River Tejo, Lisbon is a city that offers great views from miradouros, terraces and monuments, each offering a distinctive perspective of the city.
From Praça dos Restauradores, the funicular climbs up Calçada da Glória towards the Bairro Alto neighbourhood. It’s a fun ride, and in a couple of minutes you’ll be looking at Lisbon’s rooftops from the top of the hill.
Igreja de São Roque has a Renaissance façade that hides a surprising and exuberant interior of gold, marble and azulejos (hand-painted tile panels).
Chiado is one of the few areas in the city where you can still shop in century-old establishments. A few bookstores and cafés, a flower shop and a jewelry are some of the stores that remain little changed since they were founded.
On a hill opposite the Castelo de São Jorge, this convent-turned-museum houses the splendid Museu Arqueológico do Carmo that shelters an eclectic collection of archeological treasures.
The Museu do Chiado’s permanent collection includes contemporary Portuguese art as well as important sculptures by Rodin, Bourdelle and Joseph Bernard.
