EGEAC is responsible for the management of some of the most emblematic cultural spaces and monuments of the city of Lisbon.
To simplify access to these monuments and museums, EGEAC grouped them into themed packs that help you to program your visit so you can make the most of Lisbon.
São Jorge Castle and Historic Lisbon (Castelo de São Jorge and Lisboa Histórica):
At the tip of the tallest hill in the city stands the mighty “Castelo de São Jorge”. Enjoy the stunning views of Lisbon, discover the patrimony and history surrounding the castle and the city, whilst taking a walk through the charming park, and then down to the riverside. On your way, visit the main local museums conveniently located close to one another and learn some of the many stories surrounding the city.
We suggest you start at the “Teatro Romano” in “rua da saudade”. Then, descending towards the “Sé Catedral”, find the “Museu do Aljube” across the street. Several meters down the road you will find the “Museu Santo António”, honoured to the most beloved saint of Lisbon. Around the “Sé”, in “rua de São João da Praça”, you will reach the “Largo Chafariz de Dentro” with its many terrace cafés and the “Museu do Fado”. From here, heading towards “Praça do Comércio”, you will find “Campo das Cebolas” and the famous “Casa dos Bicos” with its relationship to the foundation of the city.
About the São Jorge Castle (Castelo de São Jorge):
The “Castelo de São Jorge” is a common location to learn about and appreciate the patrimony and the history of the city of Lisbon in its permanent exhibition, but also great to explore the remains of the Islamic influence during the XI century in the archaeological site, discover hidden views of the city in the dark chamber,

About the Lisbon Museum| Roman Theatre (Museu de Lisboa and Teatro Romano):
The “Teatro Romano” is a core visit at the “Museu de Lisboa”. The Theatre was first discovered in 1798 during the reconstruction of the city after the 1755 earthquake. The Theatre, built in the beginning of 1 A.C., has its semi-circular structure constructed along the slope of the hill. The ruins of the Theatre can be seen right outside the museum, and inside you can find information about its history whilst taking time to appreciate the view to the river.
About the Lisbon Museum| St Anthony (Museu de Lisboa and Santo Antonio):
This core visit of the “Museu de Lisboa”, next to the “Igreja de Santo António” and close to where he was born, this museum unites artistic and devotional expressions that show the richness and global perspective of “Santo António”, the beloved saint of Lisbon.
About the Lisbon Museum| Achaelogical Nucleos House of Beaks (Museu de Lisboa and Núcleo Arqueológico Casa Dos Bicos):
The archaeological unit is integrated into “Casa dos Bicos”, an edifice that exemplifies perfectly the civil architecture of XVI century Lisbon, but also contains remains of various constructions in the span of 2000 years.
About the Aljube Museum (Museu do Aljube):
Currently installed in the prison of “Aljube”, where many “Estado Novo” politicians were sent to jail, this museum preserves the memories of the war against the dictatorship and the resistance fighting for freedom and democracy.
The balconies in the museum café have some of the most unique perspectives of the “Sé Catedral” in all of Lisbon.
About the Fado Museu ( Museu do Fado):
Consecrated to the urban song of Lisbon, coming from its historic neighborhoods, the “Museu do Fado” honors the exceptionality of Fado as a symbol of Lisbon and its profound impact on the tradition and culture of the country. Here you may discover a real intangible heritage of humanity.
