Lisbon City and Beach nearby
In Almada stands one of the most emblematic monuments built in the last century: the Sanctuary of Christ the King. Built in 1959, 110 meters high, it offers a unique view of the country’s capital and the Tagus estuary. Inspired by the Christ the Redeemer monument in Rio de Janeiro, the Christ figure opens its arms to Lisbon and welcomes hundreds of tourists, but also many pilgrimage faithful.
In what is known as “the other band” or “south bank” by locals, is also one of the most popular beach destinations in the area: Costa de Caparica. There are over 13 kilometres filled by excellent beaches, ready to receive all those who love sun and sea.
In Caparica, you can also find the Capuchin Convent, a 16th-century Franciscan convent, with many reasons for interest and admiration, making it a great place for sightseeing.
