  • Margem Sul
  • Fragata D. Fernando II e Glória
  • 25 de Abril Bridge from the South
  • Cacilhas

Travelers are generally familiar with the view of the outstanding 25 de Abril bridge from the north bank of the Tagus River, where Lisbon is located. But how does the city look from the south side or Margem Sul, as locals call it? To discover this, we will cross the Tagus by ferry, heading towards a cliff with a vertical drop into the river. The views from the boat are simply unforgettable. We will disembark in Cacilhas, a small port neighborhood where dismissed factories have been turned into cool shops. We will enjoy a day like locals, who travel to Cacilhas to relax and dine at tiny eateries serving very fresh seafood. While exploring this colorful little town, we will walk by a real submarine and the magnificent Dom Fernando Il e Glória, a frigate launched in 1843. We will board this sailing warship, the last to be built by Portugal and also the last that undertook the Carreira da Índia or India Run. We will continue with a nice stroll along the river’s south bank to enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the entire city of Lisbon. We will also visit the Nossa Senhora do Bom Sucesso church, which stands out for its richly decorated altar and azulejo ceramic ornamentation. Later, we will walk just a little more to reward ourselves with a proper Portuguese meal at an excellent riverside restaurant. The Margem Sul: a great experience and a day to remember, in Lisbon.
