What to see in Lisbon?

Lisbon is a city with a rich history and culture, with a charming blend of tradition and modernity. During the World Youth Days, there are several cultural hotspots worth visiting to enrich your experience.

Jerónimos Monastery

One of the most beautiful examples of Manueline architecture, the Jerónimos Monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of Lisbon’s most iconic attractions. Built in the 16th century, it is not only a masterpiece of art and religion, but also houses the tombs of Vasco da Gama and Luís de Camões.

Tower of Belém

A real icon of the city that needs no introduction. The Tower of Belém is a historical monument of Lisbon and is also considered a UNESCO World Heritage site. It was built in the 16th century and served as a defence, fort as well as a starting point for many maritime expeditions.

São Jorge Castle

Set atop one of Lisbon’s seven hills, São Jorge Castle offers incredible panoramic views of the city. With roots dating back to the 5th century, the castle has a fascinating history and is a mandatory stop for anyone visiting the Portuguese capital.


Alfama is Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhood; a labyrinth of narrow, winding alleys filled with colourful houses, craft shops and traditional restaurants. It is a place full of charm worth getting lost in to discover the local culture and to listen to fado – the traditional Portuguese music.

The World Youth Days 2023 are here

The biggest spiritual event of the year in Lisbon has arrived. Discover the programme of the World Youth Days and how to make the most of your stay.

Lisbon hosts the World Youth Days, an event where thousands of young people meet with the Pope, with an intense and inspiring program. Get to know what you can expect from the programme and how to enjoy the best that the Portuguese capital has to offer.


What are the World Youth Days?

The World Youth Days bring together young people from all over the planet to celebrate faith, spirituality, and communion with the Pope. This event attracts people from different cultures, backgrounds and nationalities to provide young people with the opportunity to come together, pray and share their experiences of faith. In addition, it promotes the commitment of young people to social issues, solidarity, and charitable actions.

The World Youth Days were created by Pope John Paul II in 1986, and the first edition took place in Rome that same year. It has since become one of the largest religious gatherings in the world. This year, the program includes a variety of activities, from prayers to cultural performances. The most awaited moments are the “Vigil” and the “Final Mass”, where the Pope presides over a celebration that blesses the return of young people home to share the experiences lived during the event. But there’s a lot more on the agenda.

What is the programme of WYD 2023?

In 2023, the World Youth Days will take place in Portugal, from the 1st to the 6th of August. Throughout the event there are plenty of cultural, religious and sports initiatives. In the first four days, the highlight goes to the City of Joy, the space that joins the Vocational Fair and the Reconciliation Park, where pilgrims will be able to live different experiences.
