Must-visit spots for family travel in Lisbon

Lisbon is a perfect city to spend time with children. It is warm and safe, has a pleasant climate, is convenient for walking, and has many indoor and outdoor activities designed specifically for children.

Castelo de São Jorge

The whole family took a tram together to tour the city, and went to Saint-Joseph Castle. Walking between the walls and battlements, reliving the stories of fearless knights, was undoubtedly a great pleasure.
Go to the Lisbon Zoo with children, where there are monkey villages, lions, tigers, crocodiles, and even a reptile area. You can watch dolphin shows and feed sea lions.

1a Direito

This is the real "lung of the city", with walkways, extreme sports and various playgrounds, such as Indian Park (Parque dos Índios), Alvito Park (Parque do Alvito) and Serafina Park (Parque da Serafina), where you can swing, slide, and enjoy many other leisure activities.

Pavilhão do Conhecimento

The Pavilhão do Conhecimento (Pavilion of Knowledge) is a highly interactive science museum located in the National Park on the east side of the city and is very interesting.

Oceanarium Flat

This is one of the largest aquariums in Europe. The museum presents the ocean environments of different continents in a refined manner, allowing you to experience the wonderful world of seafaring in an immersive way.
The Belém Tower is a historic five-story defense structure built between 1514 and 1520, located in the Belém district of Lisbon, Portugal. Initially used to defend the port and monastery, it later served as a customs, telegraph tower, and lighthouse and was also the starting point for many Portuguese expeditions. The tower houses eerie dungeons and 16th-century cannons and has even been used to detain important political prisoners. The tower is divided into two parts: the tower and the bulwark, which has many gun positions and storage rooms. There are 16 gun positions along the wall for defense. The tower also has four arched rooms, namely the officer's room, the king's room, the audience room, and a small chapel. The entrance is on the south-facing wall, and the facade features excellent stone carvings. The tower's overall design combines battle and life, which helps protect the cannons, drain accumulated water, and disperse gunpowder. The tower houses many historical relics, including 16th-century cannons and Manueline-style symbols. In 1983, the Belém Tower was formally recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in 2007, it was rated as one of the Seven Wonders of Portugal.
