Avenida da Liberdade

The quintessential luxury axis is the main avenue of the city with the most important headquarters of companies, hotels and luxury shops.

 


Connecting the Restauradores Square to Marquês de Pombal, it was built in the Parision Champs-Elysées style and includes beautiful old buildings.

 


Despite being, for many years, an almost exclusive area for offices and hotels, in the last decade it has received various housing projects that have given it back its residential nature and turned it into one of the most luxurious places to live in Lisbon.

FESTIVALS AND CELEBRATIONS


Popular festivals are part of Portuguese culture and tradition, enlivening the country from the capital to the smallest village, and from North to the South. It's a vast itinerary with stopovers in places like Viana do Castelo, Viseu, Tomar, Campo Maior or Redondo, not forgetting the Santos Populares in Lisbon and Porto. Music festivals also mark the cultural itinerary, with styles to suit all ages and tastes, from jazz to rock as well as ethnic music. NOS Alive in Lisbon is one of the best in the world, and MEO Sudoeste or Músicas do Mundo (Sines) also lay ahead.

 

 

MUSEUMS


The National Museum network alone has more than 150 spaces, with an exceptional wealth of collections, installations, games and educational activities. There are many more throughout the country with thousands of artworks that deserve to be seen. The Calouste Gulbenkian Museum in Lisbon and Serralves in Porto are not to be missed, but the brand new MAAT, the Coach Museum and the Azulejo (Portuguese tile) museum are also key places for your list. Not forgetting the fabulous urban art that amazes us on the street: authentic open-air galleries.

 


THEATRES AND SHOWS

 

The increasingly dynamic cultural agenda is not only limited to large cities like Lisbon or Porto. You'll find excellent theatre halls from North to South, that hold concerts, plays and other artistic performances that’ll become etched in your memory forever.
