An oasis to be discovered in the city
The Tryp Lisboa Caparica Mar Hotel has a relaxing and carefree atmosphere and is located right next to the sea, on the largest and most popular beach in the Greater Lisbon region, the Costa da Caparica. It is the ideal hotel for a dream vacation.
COSTA DA CAPARICA
Located on the coast and largely the result of the ocean receding, Costa de Caparica occupies an area of 11 km2, between the water and main escarpment. Costa da Caparica, located in the district of Setúbal and in the municipality of Almada, is one of the most popular destinations in the country during the summer months.
- Ride the Caparica waves
Caparica is famous for its waves and perfect conditions for water sports. Costa da Caparica beach, 30 km long, is across the road from the hotel and guests can take part in surfing classes with experienced professionals and catch the best waves.
- Visit the Naval Museum
The Naval Museum is built within a space belonging to what was once the Companhia Portuguesa de Pescas. In collaboration with the Almada City Council, the museum exhibits objects, documents and memories associated with the naval traditions in Almada.
- Costa da Caparica beaches
Despite receiving several names, the beaches along the coast are actually just one long beach stretching for 30km with fine sand and separated by "imaginary lines". The most well-known are Cova do Vapor, São João, Morena, Sereia/Waikiki, Meco and Nova Vaga Beach.
- Capuchos Convent
With a privileged location, the Capuchos Convent provides views over Lisbon, the Serra de Sintra, the bay of Cascais, the Bugio, the Torre de S. Julião, up to the Serra da Arrábida and Cabo Espichel. The building maintains its original design and is a space dedicated to culture.
- Misericórdia de Almada Church
Rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake, the church has a simple architectural style and a Mannerist altarpiece, painted by Giraldo Fernandes do Prado, being the only example of Mannerist art in the municipality of Almada.
- Cristo Rei
The National Sanctuary of Cristo Rei is located 133 metres above the Tagus River and consists of a 75-metre-high portico topped by a 28-metre high statue of Christ with open arms, facing the city of Lisbon, the work of the Portuguese sculptor Francisco Franco de Sousa.
Lisbon, the richest city in Portugal, located at the mouth of the Tagus River, is one of the great European cultural centres thanks in part to the cultural relations it still has with the old Portuguese colonies in the Indies, Africa and America. It’s worth exploring the entire capital!
