I’ve never been to Portugal in my entire life.
Then I saw a lot of pictures taken in Lisbon and Sintra, so it was mandatory for me to visit the country asap.
A city not too far from Paris, in Europe with sunshine, a little warmth and of course the sea.
I’m absolutely not disappointed about my destination, the weather was perfect, we were so lucky! And it was absolutely beautiful!
Discovering the narrow streets of Lisbon was our main activity.
3 nights/3 days in Lisbon, exploring the city and around then one day in Sintra (read my adventure here), to visit the Pena Palace and the west coast – Azenhas do mar. If you’re in Sintra don’t miss to pass to Quinta da Regaleira too.
In brief, 4 perfect days that allowed me to escape the metro-boulot-dodo (= a french expression to say the “Parisian routine”) and to relax a little bit. I already can’t wait to go back again.
This article shows you the places I went, visited and discovered in 4 days 😉

Miradouro da Senhora do monte
Miradouro da Senhora do monte (The Lady of the hill) located in the Graca neighbourhood is the city’s highest lookout point (or miradouro).
Probably the most instagrammable place of Lisbon. The Pink street on Rua Nova do Carvalho, former red light district was part of the rehabilitation project in 2011 that became today a trendy spot for nightlife.
Torre de Belém
It’s one of the famous places in Lisbon that you absolutely have to visit. We drove to Torre de Belèm only 20 min from the center.
Torre de Belèm is a Unesco World Heritage site, the icon of the country.
National sanctuary of Christ the King
Praca do comercio
