In Belem you will see the magnificent Tower of Belem, a 16th century defensive structure built in the native Manueline variant of Gothic architecture. It has survived many a battle and is now a Unesco World Heritage site. Under the night floodlights, its golden reflection sparkles in the Tagus. From there we will head to the city centre to drive through emblematic spots such as Comercio, Rossio and Pombal squares, and the Avenida da Liberdade, Lisbon’s most elegant boulevard. Soon it will be time for the highlight of the night: a traditional dinner to the accompaniment of Fado. These nostalgic and wistful songs are considered to be the ultimate expression of the spirit of Portugal: beauty tinged with melancholy. The word Fado itself means destiny and is derived from the Latin word that gave English the word fate. Experiencing a genuine Fado is your destiny when in town.
