Baixa, or downtown Lisbon, is the heart of the city. It's the main shopping and banking district that stretches from the riverfront to the main avenue (Avenida da Liberdade), with streets named according to the shopkeepers and craftsmen who traded in the area. It was completely rebuilt after the Great Earthquake of 1755, with streets flanked by uniform, neoclassical buildings. This was Europe's first great example of neoclassical design and urban planning, and one of the finest European architectural achievements of the age (it's currently being considered to be listed as a World Heritage Site).

The National Pantheon, housing the tombs of Portugal’s major historic celebrities, is located on the original site of the church of Santa Engrácia. Founded in the second half of the 16th century, the building was totally rebuilt at the end of the 17th century by the architect João Antunes. Even though it was never used as a place of worship, it still preserves, under its modern dome, a majestic nave with a polychrome marble decoration typical of the Portuguese Baroque architecture. Being an icon of Lisbon’s cityscape and having a privileged location, as it overlooks the city’s historic centre and the river Tagus, it is listed as a National Monument.

The Santa Justa Lift is an elevator in Lisbon and is the fastest way to get from the Baixa neighbourhood to the Bairro Alto district. It was inaugurated as one of the city’s public transport systems on 10 July 1902 and was called Elevador do Carmo (Carmo Lift). Lisbon’s inhabitants were so excited to try this novelty that on the first day, 3,000 tickets were sold. The Lift was a huge success, as before it existed, it was very difficult to travel from upper to lower Lisbon and vice versa.

Praça do Comércio, Commerce Square in English, is Lisbon’s main square. It was built on the site where the old Royal Palace used to exist before it was destroyed by the earthquake of 1755. The southern end of the plaza is open and looks out onto the Tagus River. The other three sides have yellow-coloured buildings with arcades all along the façade. When the square was first built, the commercial ships would unload their goods directly onto this square, as it was considered the “door” to Lisbon. On the river bank, near the square, is the Cais de Sodré ferry terminal from which several ferries depart down the Tagus River.

The Águas Livres Aqueduct (Portuguese: Aqueduto das Águas Livres, pronounced [ɐkɨˈdutu dɐz‿aɡwɐʃ ˈlivɾɨʃ], "Aqueduct of the Free Waters") is a historic aqueduct in the city of Lisbon, Portugal. It is one of the most remarkable examples of 18th-century Portuguese engineering. The main course of the aqueduct covers 18 km, but the whole network of canals extends through nearly 58 km. The city of Lisbon has always suffered from lack of drinking water, and King John V decided to build an aqueduct to bring water from sources in the parish of Caneças, in the modern municipality of Odivelas. The project was paid for by a special sales tax on beef, olive oil, wine, and other products.

The charmingly retro, no-frills dining room boasts seascape murals on the wall and a large lobster tank.

If you walk past Rossio and you spot people with a tiny plastic cup, odds are they’re drinking Ginjinha. Ginjinha or Ginja, for short, might not be easy to pronounce, but this sour cherry liqueur certainly goes down easy. There’s even a Portuguese saying: “Sabe que nem ginjas,” which means “it tastes delicious.” A Ginjinha is one of the oldest bars in Lisbon where you can get this local drink. Before pouring it, the owners will ask you if you want com elas or sem elas, with or without cherries. For an extra kick, we recommend getting ginjinha com elas. Not only do you get the taste of the drink, but you also get to taste the fruit itself.

Alfama, Chiado, Príncipe Real, you’ll probably hear these names when you walk around Lisbon. Not only are they famous Lisbon neighborhoods, but they’re also featured cocktails at the Foxtrot Bar. Set off the beaten path, Foxtrot has that speakeasy feel, with its dimly lit rooms and Art Deco style. To get inside, you’ll first need to ring a bell! A fireplace invites you to sit and get warm—a great perk in the winter, as most houses in Lisbon don’t offer central heating. In summer, you can enjoy the small courtyard outside. Besides the Lisbon-inspired cocktails, they offer the classics, as well as a wide choice of whiskeys and gins.

From the outside, it’s hard to see what goes on behind the doors of Pavilhão Chinês, but we encourage you to take a peek! Once you’re in, you won’t be able to contain yourself from admiring the thousands of artifacts put on display. There are miniature airplanes on the roof, and cabinets filled with old trains and toy soldiers. It’s a bar, yes, but you could as well be in a museum. The owners took over an old grocery store in 1986 and turned it into an exclusive cocktail bar that attracts both locals and tourists. Fancy a game of pool? Just head to the back, and you’ll find two tables to play in. As for the drinks, we recommend the daiquiris, but you really can’t go wrong here.

Whether you drink red, white or even rosé, there’s plenty of vinho on offer at By the Wine. Just look at the menu or point at the shelf if the price isn’t an issue, and pick your favorite. The bar belongs to José Maria da Fonseca, one of the oldest wine producers in Portugal. To pair with the delicious Portuguese wine, you can order small snacks, aka petiscos. Here at Devour Lisbon, we love the cheese from Azeitão and the salmon ceviche.

Most bars in Bairro Alto will advertise shots and cocktails on flashy boards outside—not this one though. At Loucos e Sonhadores, translated as Madmen and Dreamers, it’s all about the simple things. A glass of beer or wine and free salty popcorn is what draws locals to this relaxed venue. Yes, they serve cocktails too, if you must ask. Unlike most bars in the area, this one has plenty of space to sit down and a pretty funky decoration. Just make sure to arrive early.

Okay, so technically this isn’t a bar, but if you’re in Lisbon you must try at least one kiosk! They’re dotted all over the city, but our favorite is the Quiosque Príncipe Real. Set near the garden of Príncipe Real, this small kiosk is the perfect place for an afternoon beer or a coffee. You can also order small snacks here, like the Lisbon custard tarts.

You see the red neon sign shining from a distance saying “BAR”, but how do you get in this Lisbon rooftop bar? Easy, through the shopping mall. Yes, you read that right. You go inside the mall, call the elevator and six floors later, you’ll end up in TOPO. The views alone are worth the visit! From here you can spot the São Jorge Castle and many of Lisbon’s viewpoints with a cocktail in hand. There’s often a DJ playing, and they even named the cocktails after songs. We love the Material Girl, a vodka-infused cocktail with a touch of strawberry and lemon.

This stranded spaceship of a building designed by architect Chaves da Costa has recently gained new life as a viewpoint, which has frankly always been its calling. Abandoned since 2001, it was only occasionally visited by wanderers, tourists, peepers or people equipped with spray paint cans who went there to do what people equipped with spray paint cans do. It can be legally and safely explored since September 2017.
