Hey hungry travelers!                              

Are you ready to visit one of the most historical and important cities in the world and get lost in its wonders and sights? Then join us for a 3-day visit to our own capital! That’s right, we are going to Lisbon!

TRIP TO LISBON
27th to 29th of October
Meeting Point: Reitoria da Universidade do Porto @ 8:00 am

Full of huge iconic buildings and small hidden secrets, Lisbon will never stop surprising you. So, come and enjoy its culture, art, architecture and amazing food. And in the end of the day, you get to party!

Lisbon still holds today the remains of Portugal’s former empire, giving you monuments like Jerónimos Monastery and Belém Tower, two UNESCO World Heritage Sites and symbols of our power and wealth in the 16th century.

In 1755 Lisbon was struck by a devastating earthquake which destroyed a great part of the city centre, but after it was rebuilt, one of the city’s main squares was born: the Palace Square or “Terreiro do Paço”. Also, a brand-new palace was built for the royal family, called Palácio da Ajuda, along with many modern avenues and squares. Still many historical parts of the city survived, you will get to see the historical São Jorge Castle, which will offer you an amazing view of the river Tejo and the Atlantic Ocean.

But Lisbon is more than monuments, it’s the birthplace of Fado, our traditional music, which you are very likely to hear while you roam its tiny historic streets, and it’s the home of Pastéis de Belém, a delicious sweet specialty which you can only find in our capital. In the end, you can visit the largest indoor aquarium in Europe, the Oceanário!
