Indeed a hidden gem apart from the mainstream, but you should know some bits of Portuguese history otherwise you'll be lost. Explanations are rare and there are no links to any historical context.

If you are staying in Lisbon don't miss this excellent museum which is set in a beautiful building with amazing frescoes and a wonderful vaulted cellar. The blue tiles depicting historic battles in the courtyard are well worth the 3 Euro entrance fee alone but...More

From 10 to 12:30 on Saturday and Sunday mornings a martial arts club conducts training sessions for its members in European swordsmanship (two-handed swords, not fencing), in the museum's basement vaults. This is well-worth watching for people interested in martial arts, especially if one has...More

We dropped in to this museum on a whim and weren't disappointed. At 3 Euros it really is very reasonable. The route is quiet easy to follow although the exhibits are set out a bit haphazard and there does not seem to be the usual...More

You need at least one full afternoon to walk through the entire collection, from medieval knights to World War I diorama. Most of the information labels are in Portuguese, with only a scattering of labels in English. The place is dark and as no flash...More

Graca & Sao Vicente
You can be thankful that most common travel guides
don't mention Graça and São Vicente that often. Part
of Lisbon's historic center and "Old Town", they feel
like independent villages in the capital's center, and
more untouched than Alfama. Amazing views, restaurants
and parks, as well as important monuments like the S.

spectacular option for those looking for a more
