Lisbon: Free things to do on Sunday

If you’ll be in Lisbon anytime soon, plan to lay low during the week (or head to the beach) and hit the major sights and museums on Sunday. Why tour on the day of rest? Because many of Lisbon’s attractions are free, for at least a few hours, every Sunday of the year.

Some museums—like the Museum of Ancient Art and the National Tile Museum— are only open for free for a few hours on Sunday, typically from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m..

We suggest you break up your day with trips to two or three museums and attractions, leaving time to stop for lunch or custard. For example, It’s easy to pack in the Maritime Museum and Monastery of the Hieronymites, in the Belem district, in a morning or afternoon. Or, spend the entire day at the Gulbenkian Museum, which is open all day Sunday for free.

Have a fun-day!
