Discover the city’s coolest pokéstops and gyms!
Like so many other cities around the world, Lisbon is also home to hundreds of pocket monsters. Bulbasaur, Caterpie, Pikachu, Rattata and Charmander invaded the capital during the launch of Pokémon GO and have become a part of the real world like never before, waiting to be captured by the best trainers. Do you want to catch them all? Then discover the city’s coolest Pokéstops and Gyms and explore Lisbon while adding monsters that you’ve never seen to your Pokédex!
Avenida da Liberdade. One of Lisbon’s main avenues, Avenida da Liberdade is known for its unique and world renowned shops. However, this summer it’s also a must stop for those who enjoy playing Pokémon GO. Here you’ll find gyms where you can earn experience points and Pokéstops where you can receive special items. One of them is, for example, the building that houses the “Diário de Notícias” newspaper.
Marquês de Pombal. If you want to train your monsters, pass by the iconic Marquês de Pombal statue. This time around, the festivities aren’t related to the EURO football final, but rather the blue, red and yellow team fighting each other and trying to conquer the gym that exists here. A couple of days ago, Pikachu was seen in this part of the city, near the Eduardo VII Park!
Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodré. Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodre are loved by those who enjoy a drink with friends and some dancing. Besides that, they’re areas that receive trainers of various ages. Will you be able to find Jigglypuff on Rua Cor-de-rosa (Pink Street)? Or do you think he’ll be camouflaged?
Estádio da Luz. Both the club’s Stadium and Museum appear as Pokéstops when we approach them. Take a tour, learn about Benfica’s history and receive Poké Balls and other items that will help you throughout the game.
Estrela Garden. The Estrela Garden is one of Lisbon’s coolest gardens and Pokémon GO is the perfect excuse to lie on the grass, enjoy the spot and still catch some monsters.
Belém. An area that is filled with Pokéstops, it invites you to hatch some eggs and get to know a part of the country’s history. If you get hungry (which is quite likely after all the walking the game has you doing) pass by Pastéis de Belém and indulge in a typical Portuguese sweet!
Have a good game!
