Museums and monuments

Lisbon's Museu do Oriente europeforvisitors.com
A stunning new museum in a former salt-cod warehouse traces Portugal's historic and cultural role in the Far East, introduces Asian gods, and has temporary exhibits drawn from a collection of more than 13,000 objects.

Oceanário de Lisboa europeforvisitors.com
Lisbon's Oceanarium is the biggest aquarium in Europe and the second-largest in the world. The shiplike exhibit building has a huge tank and offers activities that range from backstage tours to slumber parties with sharks.

Sintra's Pena National Palace europeforvisitors.com
Take a suburban train to Sintra, a thousand-year-old mountain town that's famous for its royal palaces--including the park and palace of Pena, where an over-the-top mock Moorish and medieval castle sits atop a rocky promontory.

Cabo da Roca europeforvisitors.com
From Lisbon, it's an easy trip by public transportation to the far Western tip of Continental Europe.

Monastery of Jerónimos
This superb example of Manueline architecture is one of Lisbon's "must-see" attractions. An interesting Naval Museum is next door.

Tower of Belém
The fortress at the entrance to Lisbon on the River Tagus was built in the 16th Century. Don't miss the view from the top.
