Terreiro do Paço
Lisbon's grandest square faces the river, and was originally designed to welcome those arriving in the city by boat.
What you see today is the 18th-century version, as the original square, named "Terreiro do Paço" and home to the royal palace, was destroyed in the 1755 Earthquake. It was rebuilt with a triumphal arch facing the Tagus, and the surrounding arcaded buildings held government offices for many years.

Sintra, Portugal is often called a fairytale village, and for one good reason. Aptly named after the moon goddess by the Moors, the place teems with castles and palaces that are so enchanting that they all seem to come straight from fantasy books. Its lush and exotic foliage also add to the bewitching ambiance of the place. It is indeed not surprising why so many people are enamored of the place. In fact, it has charmed the world’s greatest poets, conquerors, aristocrats and philosophers, making this fantasy-like village a genuinely historical place.

Santa Justa Lift
One of the city's best-loved landmarks and also known as the "Elevator of Carmo," this extraordinary structure was built at the turn of the century by the Portugal-born French architect Raoul de Mesnier du Ponsard (an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel, explaining the structure's similarities to Paris' Eiffel Tower), to connect downtown to Bairro Alto (the lowest and highest points of the city).
