Must See Place in Lisbon

Recommended Posts

Five years ago, we had a port stop in Lisbon and thoroughly enjoyed our tour that spent part of the day in Sintra.  When we did another cruise in Sep/Oct that started in Amsterdam and ended in Lisbon, we had to spend more time in Lisbon, so we spent three days there.  On the second day, we had a tour with same guide we used from Top Ten Tours in 2014.  On the first day in Lisbon, my son and I walked all around town, so we wanted to see places we hadn't seen on the first visit or during our long walking tour the day before.  One of the places he took us to was the National Palace of Queluz.  I had not heard of it before and apparently most people hadn't, since there were very few tourists visiting it.  The palace is drop dead gorgeous and has a lovely garden.  It also had something I had never even heard of called the Tiles Channel where the royal family could ride a boat or gondola on that was covered in beautiful tiles.  You can see a bunch of photos in my review that is linked to in my signature; but I will put a few below.  If you have time while visiting Lisbon, I would highly recommend going to see it.
