Lapa District Tours

The Lapa district is an affluent neighborhood in Lisbon, sometimes referred to as the diplomatic quarter. It has many residential buildings as well as a high concentration of embassies representing more than a dozen countries. Many old mansions line the streets, making it an interesting area for a stroll. São Bento Manor, the official residence of the Prime Minister of Portugal, is also located in this neighborhood. The Basilica da Estrela, a baroque basilica from the late 1700s, is located here. 

Another building worth seeing is São Bento Palace, which housed the Portuguese Republic Assembly and was built at the end of the 1400s. There are a few museums in the area as well, including the Amalia Rodrigues Museum House, which is where the Queen of Fado lived for 50 years, and the National Museum of Antique Art, which is housed in a 17th century palace. In the Lapa district, you'll also find the Estrela Garden, designed in an English style in 1852.
