TRAVELING WITH APPS - Lisbon

Lisbon – once the center of the world

Portugal is a very small country, and yet once, centuries ago, it was a world empire, a nation of discoverers, tradesmen and colonizers. Much of Portugal's rich and colorful history is reflected and preserved in Lisbon, its capital city.

Unfortunately, in an era of cheap travel, many visitors come to Portugal for its beaches or golf courses. Far too many either ignore or are unaware of Lisbon and the attractions it has to offer its visitors.

As a history buff, I just had to visit Lisbon, but before making the trip, wanted to get the very best guide books to take along with me. There are some wonderful books available but than a friend suggested looking at IPhone apps for Lisbon. As soon as I opened the first one, I was hooked! This is so much more than a guide book! It's a guide book with pictures and video clips, with interactive maps that link to a GPS to tell you where you are and how to get somewhere else. If you need it you have internet and best of all, you have Augmented Reality that lets you point the IPhone's camera at something and it then tells you all about it or can even suggest other things to do in the area.

So, these were the highlights of my trip to Lisbon. I can really recommend this city for any traveler – it has lots for everybody!

Belem Palace of today was originally built in the 18th century but the site has been the home for Portuguese monarchs since King Manuel I in 1559. Today it is the Presidential Palace. Perhaps more than any other structure in Lisbon, this is the history of Portugal. Using the apps I traced its history through the years, chronicling the rise and fall of the Portuguese empire.

Casa dos Bicos or House of the Spikes was built in the early 16th century in the Alfama neighborhood. The front of the house is a mixture of Renaissance and Manueline (a type of gothic styling) and according to archeological finds on the site, has been the site of a building since the Roman period.

The Church of S?o Vicente de For-a was first built as monastery in the 12th century and holds the tombs of the Braganza kings of Portugal. The church is a marvelous structure, decorated with over one million intricate ceramic tiles.

Belem Tower isn't connected to Belem Palace and was built in the 16th century as a tribute to the city's patron saint St. Vincent whilst also serving as defense post for Portuguese shipping.

Other sites not to be missed in Lisbon include Estrela's Basilica, St. George's Castle, the Jernfnimos Monastery and the Lisbon Cathedral.
