See the collection of the Armenian oil tycoon with a penchant for paintings, sculpture, Persian textiles, Asian porcelain, Arabic tile and ceramic arts, and even Art Nouveau jewelry. The Gulbenkian is a spectacular museum and theater with a vast range of classical performers and a great bookstore which carries our favorite guides to Portugal. Take a walk through the surrounding park, around the lake, and through the open-air amphitheater and follow the tree-covered, winding path replete with delicate landscaping and the occasional duck crossing.

NOTE: Gulbenkian’s modern art collection is in a different building, don’t let the website fool you. Come out at the east entrance and head south along the bike path.
