Lisbon has many sights drawing your attention, but as you walk around the city, look down at your feet for some authentic works of art.
Beautiful pavements decorated with patterned designs can be seen all over Portugal, but that tradition started in Lisbon.
Remember to look down as you stroll through Avenida da Liberdade, the main squares downtown (Restauradores and Rossio), and Chiado.
For more contemporary designs, look around Parque das Nações, especially by the Oceanarium, where you'll find images of sea monsters and other maritime designs.
For more information on this Portuguese art form, see this Portuguese calçada guide or this list of Lisbon's 10 Most Beautiful Pavements »
