The Terreiro do Paço River Station is the starting point for the 45-minute cruise. From the river, you can see Commerce Square, Sao Jorge Castle, Alfama, the National Pantheon, and Santa Apolonia Station in the historic city center. Sail through the middle of the river on the way back to take in Lisbon's beautiful hills and, from a distance, the 25 de Abril Bridge and Christ the King.
The tour takes place on a vintage 1947 sailing cargo boat that can hold fifty passengers. Warm tones and numerous hand-painted flowers add a touch of charm and authenticity to the boat's decor.
These boats went out of use in the late 1960s when road bridges were built, and only about 75 of the thousands of boats that were built survived, all of which were properly registered in the Marinha do Tejo, the living portion of the Portuguese Navy Museum. Take a river cruise on this one-of-a-kind piece of historical history.
