Some of the sights and tourist attractions in Lisbon that from ebooking.com we recommend are the following:

The Cathedral of Lisbon
This building was built in the twelfth century and stands out for its beautiful Roman-style architecture. Although it has been damaged and has been renovated many times throughout its history, this cathedral still retains some of its original relics and vestiges from Roman and Arabic era. At the upper part of the cathedral you will find a room where are preserved the best relics of the cathedral.

Tower of Belém
The Tower of Belém is one of the most important tourist attractions in the city of Lisbon. This impressive tower was built in the fifteenth century to defend the city against pirates and other threats. Inside the tower can be appreciated the cannons which were used at that time and a spiral staircase to climb to its top. Due to its importance as a tourist attraction it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

The Jeronimos Monastery has also been declared a World Heritage Site and it’s a tourist attraction that all visitors to the city should visit. This monastery stands out for its unique architecture and decoration. It was constructed in the sixteenth century to celebrate the return of Vasco de Gama from his travel to India.
