In a city full of incredible architecture, these are six of the most beautiful buildings in Lisbon — churches, train stations, cathedrals and more.
Lisbon is one of the most attractive Western European capitals, with its glittering waterside location, seemingly-endless sunshine, and large number of gorgeous buildings. While you’ll find spectacular, albeit sometimes crumbling, architecture almost anywhere in the downtown area, a few buildings stand out as being worth a visit all by themselves.
From churches to train stations, ancient cathedrals to shiny new museums and more, these are six of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
Start your architectural journey by taking a tram, train, bus (or your feet!) along the riverfront, out to the popular Belém neighborhood. There are several stunning buildings in the area, but the most impressive has to be the Jerónimos Monastery.
