    Lisbon Things to Do

    I was pleased to find that excavation at the rear of the cathedral had continued since my last visit in 2008. In consequence, the site is much easier to interpret. There are information boards in English and walkways above the excavations, so you can get excellent views of what once was. The dig goes deep enough to expose some of the pre-Roman...

    "Man of scientific spirit, very large culture and rare sensibility...", is what I read in the leaflet received at the entrance of the park, about the man who conceived the place.

I had just eaten lunch at Restaurante Alcobaca next door, but their dessert menu did not include queijadas, so I made my way to Piriquita instead.

    This deep crevice in the rocky coast near Cascais is a popular draw for tourists, although I personally failed to see why. Maybe the weather was just too nice and the sea too calm when I visited. In fact it looked rather tranquil, quite a letdown considering its name translated into English is 'The Mouth of Hell'! Furthermore, a number of...
