Lisbon, Day 3: The Riverbank

Due to our relative success on Tuesday, we were free to leave the vicinity of the Old Town and head west to mop up the rest of Lisbon. Our first stop was to the Basílica da Estrela, a nice church in which to spend 20-30 minutes or so.


After that we travelled on to the Jerónimos Monastery, another impressive building that required a bit of time to appreciate - entrance to the church was free too.


We then switched to lazy mode and walked along the coast up to the Belem Tower after which we caught a private boat back to the Arco.


It was still relatively early and so after checking out the Timeout Market we headed home for a quick chill before heading out again for an afternoon walk, heading to the Santa Justa elevator to see what the fuss was about.


After dinner we ended up retracing Tuesday's tuktuk ride while checking out the night time views of Alfama as well as some of Lisbon's famous street art along the way.
