Best places to see in Portugal

Santa Justa Elevator
Landmarks
As you approach this curious construction – all wrought iron and spindly neo-Gothic tracery – it’s hard not to wonder how it doesn’t topple over. But it’s been working just fine for over a century. Reach the Bairro Alto in style, with flashes of the cityscape peeping through the elevator’s filigree windows as you climb. In the City of the Seven Hills, this is a real leg-saver.

Jeronimos Monastery
Monuments
In 1497, Vasco da Gama spiced up Portugal forever. His voyage to India secured the spice trade routes, filling Manuel I’s royal coffers with untold riches. This spicy wealth bankrolled Jeronimos Monastery, the lavish paragon of Manueline architecture. Part Gothic and part Renaissance, it dazzles with stunning stonework whose seafaring scenes salute Portugal’s great explorers.
Accommodations near Jeronimos Monastery
Palacio da Bolsa
Landmarks
It’s strictly historic of Palacio da Bolsa. This neoclassical palace was designed as part of the São Francisco Church, but was rebuilt as the headquarters for the Porto Commerce Association. Today, it’s used to house permanent art collections. Make sure to pass by the Arab Room, a gleaming gold chamber that dazzles with its decoration.

Paris Galleries Street
Popular Areas
“Shall we go to the Galleries?”. In Porto, this is a common way of asking someone out for a drink. This street is piled high with trendy bars and groove-tastic discos. Out on the street, different strains of music thump out of clubs beckoning you in. Locals recommend Plano B, a funky bar with art exhibits and two separate dance floors. Night owls, fly this way.
Accommodations near Paris Galleries Street
Music House
Landmarks
Porto’s newest city symbol moves to its own beat. From the outside, the unique architectural lines of this all-white concert hall conjure descriptors like “futuristic” and “minimalist”. Each night, a range of music attracts attendees as diverse as jazz cats, classical connoisseurs, and disco divas. When after-dancing hunger hits, just head up to the top-floor.
Accommodations near Music House
The Strip - Albufeira
Popular Areas
Aeons of neon. During the day, the shops on this street dazzle with fluorescent inflatable beach gear. Once night falls, the garish glow of flickering neon announces bar after pumping bar. Fresh-faced revellers glow with beach-fresh sunburn as they swig shots in bars like Reno’s and La Bamba. This strip doesn’t tease so much as shove it in your face. Join the madness.
